MBACP Counsellor PG Dip. Counselling and Psychotherapy

About me

When experiencing difficult or overwhelming times, it can really help to talk to a therapist, who can listen and offer support, in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. I see therapy as a joint venture, with the therapeutic relationship being fundamental to bringing about change. 

I am a fully qualified and experienced person-centred counsellor, working with adults and young people over the age of 16. I offer a warm, empathic and confidential space, where you can explore your personal difficulties and develop greater self awareness and understanding, which can lead to long term change. 

Over the years I have supported clients from a range of backgrounds and of various ages to overcome issues including; trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, bereavement, sexual violence, grief and addiction. 

My approach is Person centred, Which is non-directive and focuses on supporting you to connect to your feelings and emotions, and make sense of what you’re experiencing. 

I also draw upon other modalities, such as cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness, to best meet the needs of each client. 

I offer a free initial consultation (30 minutes) via phone or zoom. Together we can explore what has prompted you to seek therapy, and you can get an idea of what it might be like for us to work with one another. 

I currently work in private practice and am a volunteer counsellor at a women's centre. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the BACP and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations


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.
