About me

Welcome to my counselling and supervision practice. Counselling can be a transformative journey that can help you recover from trauma, navigate through depression and anxiety, and a space to express yourself in times of loss. It's also an opportunity for self-discovery, a chance to embrace the fascinating and sometimes wounded aspects of ourselves.

With over two decades of experience as an integrative counsellor and twelve years as a couples counsellor, I am here to support you in understanding your patterns and behaviours. Together, we can create a safe space for exploring new ways of being, improving your relationships, and addressing trauma and emotional wounds at a pace that suits your unique needs.

My approach to counselling is built on warmth, empathy, and trust. I understand the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship, one that allows you to delve into your concerns with confidence and security, enabling personal growth and self-awareness.

Whether you prefer face-to-face sessions or the convenience of online counselling, I am here to accompany you on your journey towards greater well-being and self-discovery.

If you're ready to take the next step, please get in touch. I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
