About me

Sometimes life gets a bit too much. Maybe something happened recently or a long time ago that brings lots of feelings and you see no obvious way through. Or perhaps you have a growing sense of anxiety or depression with or without an understandable reason. Maybe you find yourself doing the same things again and again, that don't serve you and wonder why? I believe that each and every one of us has the key to work through those things and sometimes we need some help. Counselling can be that help. My aim is to create a safe space where clients feel able to voice their thoughts, feelings, concerns and anxieties. What makes it safe is a defined space for you to focus on you, a commitment from me to listen without imposing judgement, and to be genuine. A confidential space separate from friends and family where you can explore the things that are important to you at your own pace.

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.
