About me

Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor working online to support individuals and couples, over sixteen years of age.

Change and choice can be challenging. Making the decision to enter into therapy can be one of the most difficult steps we ever take.

Maybe you are managing to function, but struggling to cope?

It can really help to talk freely and confidentially with someone whose life and relationships are totally separate from yours. With impartial help and support, to express yourself and review your beliefs and decisions, you will be able to clarify your thoughts and feelings. It can then become easier to make sense of what is happening.

Together we can explore the issues you are struggling with: anxiety, depression, relationship or family issues, and discover ways of being and doing, that better suit the person you are today. Learning to live differently with what has happened in the past can help you to move forward and live a more positive, emotionally informed life.

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.
