About me

I’m a BACP registered counsellor offering sessions in central Cambridge CB4, online.

My approach to counselling is integrative having trained in person-centred, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. I believe you are the expert of your own life, even if it doesn’t feel that way at the moment. I’m here to offer a safe, non-judgemental and nurturing environment in which I will support and help you as we explore the issues which led you to seek counselling.

Our first session will be an introduction session where I can get more of an understanding of why you are seeking counselling, explain how our sessions might work and you can ask me any questions you might have. It will be completely up to you if you'd like to continue.

I also have a particular interest in infertility, donor conception and relationship dynamics be that family, friends, work or romantic.

If you're struggling please get in touch and find out how counselling with me can help you.

I am now able to offer evening and Saturday morning appointments.

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.
