About me

I am an integrative counsellor with a client-centred focus. This means I will always work with you to get the most out of your therapeutic journey, employing different counselling theories and techniques while ensuring that you are in control and your needs are at the forefront. 

When starting out we would explore what brings you to counselling, what feelings and thoughts you wish to address in our time together. Once we have established this, we can look to incorporate techniques and skills that can be effective for your specific needs. 

Seeking counselling support can be daunting, and I will always ensure to work with you to make sure that our sessions are a comfortable and safe place for you to express and explore whatever you need to to see the progress you are aiming for. Part of my person-centred approach is that I will always try to bring my genuine self to the counselling space, so that you feel comfortable doing the same.

If your mental health feels like a jigsaw puzzle, let me help you find the clear picture within.

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.

Further information

I offer new clients a free 15 minute intro call to allow us to get to know each other somewhat. This intro call also allows you to take some time to discuss key facts like support networks you already might have, and the concerns that you would like to work on. 

Sessions typically are 50 minutes weekly. We can discuss other options such as fortnightly, however as a rule the best results come from weekly sessions on a consistent basis.
