About me

Sometimes life can be a challenge and you just need someone to talk to. Are you feeling stressed, anxious, or feeling a bit lost? Through working together we can find ways both to help you cope and resolve immediate difficulties and to talk about the links between your past and present experiences. This will give you a deeper understanding of what you are feeling and why, broaden your sense of who you are, and enable you to make effective, positive and lasting change. This could be through the use of talking therapy, and/or application of tools and techniques to help you on your journey.

I am a person centred counsellor that works with a pluralistic approach, so I blend tools and techniques from other modalities of counselling including CBT for the benefit of the client. This allows the two of us to look at what works and what doesn't work and come up with a plan that is tailored for you.

I offer confidential sessions where you can say what you like, without fear of being judged. I will do my best to understand what life is like for you and gain a deeper understanding of the presenting issue from your perspective. I have worked with a variety of clients from different and diverse backgrounds who bring their own unique experiences with them.

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.
