About me

I believe that each person is the expert on themselves and already has the ability to heal within them, but I understand that life can sometimes make it hard to see the path clearly, and that’s where counselling can come in.

At the heart of counselling is the relationship between us - I build warm, trusting relationships with my clients to ensure a safe environment where you feel heard and understood.

We would spend time exploring what’s going on for you now, and sometimes looking back to past experiences as a way to understand a bit more about the present. I may sometimes ask hard questions, but I would never make you talk about something you don’t want to or don’t feel ready to. I will walk alongside you on your journey. We will work together.

I first had counselling as a confused student, grappling with what my life was and would be. What I learnt from having a safe, reliable and honest space impacted my life and it’s with this first-hand experience that I approach my work.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
