I offer counselling for individuals and couples, for more information see the 'counselling' page on my website.
I am warm and empathic, and understanding and open towards others. With my varied experiences of work and travel, I have met a range of people from different heritages, which has helped me be a better and broader-minded Counsellor.
I offer you a safe, confidential space where you can explore those difficult moments in your life. I am there to help you as an individual or as a couple, to navigate through your difficult experiences, hurts and distresses, or other moments you need to share with someone. I will provide you with the necessary conditions to help you navigate through your difficult experiences.
My work as a Counsellor reflects three core beliefs:
1. Being genuine, so you can successfully explore the issues that have brought you to seek help and find your way through them.
2. Being accepting, caring and empathic, giving you the opportunity to increase your self-understanding and manage your life in a more constructive, satisfying, and healthy way.
3. Providing a non-judgmental and safe place to share your experiences as we work together to explore your actions, thoughts, and feelings.
Our life experiences shape us in unique and particular ways and opening up what has been difficult for us requires kindness and compassion from ourselves and others if we are to heal and grow. While it may take time, it is in the here and now that we learn to work with the difficulties of our lives, and that is where healing happens.
Together, we will explore your current feelings and circumstances and you can start to bring about changes in your life, and your relationships with yourself and others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained to work therapeutically with you in person or online. I have a Diploma and a First Class Bachelor (Honours) degree in Person-Centred Counselling, accredited by BACP (the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), Metanoia Institute in London and Middlesex University. I am a registered member of BACP. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and insurance for professional and public liability.
I am also trained in Imago Relationship Therapy, to work with you on couples therapy and marriage counselling.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
