About me

Are you wondering if counselling is the way forward for you? Maybe your life is proving very challenging and you are experiencing anxiety and sadness in your current life situation. I know how important it is to be listened to and to be heard. Choosing counselling as a way to explore your concerns is not an easy step to take and finding a counsellor you feel comfortable and able to work with can be daunting. Bearing all this in mind, if you would like to find out more, we could arrange an initial meeting to consider what you would like from counselling and discuss whether and how we could work together to address your concerns.

As a qualified integrative counsellor, I can offer a safe, warm, non judgemental and confidential setting for you to focus on the difficulties you are facing at a pace which meets your needs. I could work with you to help you understand your inner life and your options which might involve making changes or maybe seeking closure and acceptance.

My training and experience enables me to draw on a wide diversity and richness of theory which means I can offer a degree of flexibility in the way I work. My work however is underpinned by a person centred approach and as such I value and recognise the uniqueness of those I work with. I very much see the counselling relationship as being at the heart of the therapeutic work.

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.
