About me

Sometimes, our efforts to put others' needs before our own can backfire, leaving us feeling undervalued and taken advantage of.  Bullying, divorce, critical parents and abusive relationships can have devastating effects. If left unchecked, they can lead to a decline in self-worth and confidence, effecting our potential and quality of life. Trying to re-establish yourself after years of not feeling like the 'real you' is not easy to do on your own. If you’re feeling out of touch with who you really are, I'm here to help.

I work with clients to develop a more concrete self-concept with a focus on building self-acceptance and restoring core values. I will listen to your story, ask questions and try to understand what life means to you. With your consent, we may explore creative, mindful and compassionate exercises to aid your process.

I know reaching out for help can be a daunting experience. We all have imperfections, insecurities, quirks and vulnerabilities, I welcome and invite them all. To help you decide if we’re a good fit, I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation so you can ask questions and give me brief details of your situation. I work in person and online.

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” - Carl Jung

Member organisations

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.
