About me

*Due to current guidelines, in-person session are suspended and I am only able to hold sessions online via video or a telephone call.

I am a qualified counsellor working from a person centred perspective. This means that you are at the centre of the work that we do together. The therapy is client led, meaning that you are supported to take an active role in your sessions, whereas I take a non-direct and non-judgmental approach.

Through listening to what you choose to bring into the session, together we can work towards helping you to feel more like 'you.'

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
