I have personally experienced the transformative effects of counselling, but I know that reaching out for counselling support can feel like a huge, nerve-wracking step for many people. A short, initial chat on the phone may provide you with the reassurance you need to embark on your own personal journey to greater wellbeing. I will provide you with a warm, confidential and reflective space for you to explore the difficulties you may be experiencing. At the heart of my approach is the belief that together we can create awareness and understanding of what's causing your current discomfort. I can then support you in making the changes necessary to help restore greater balance, peace and happiness in your life.

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.

When I work
As a Humanistic counsellor, I work with my clients to help them develop better self-awareness and a clearer understanding of their difficulties. Working collaboratively, I help clients discover aspects of self that might be contributing to their discomfort and then support them in enabling them to make changes. All individuals are unique and so I use a range of therapeutic techniques to suit each client and their particular needs. I offer open ended counselling, so this ranges from a few sessions to longer term work depending on a client’s needs and what is agreed. I have experience of working with adults and young people (16+), helping them with a range of issues.
