About me

As a qualified integrative therapist, respect is at the centre of my beliefs. I fervently believe that an individual, no matter who you are, should have the arena in which to be heard, without prejudice, without judgement and with compassion. Our inclusive space will be one of confidentiality, trust and a pace that you feel able to go at, and I hope that we will work to resolve, or at least identify, some, if not all, of the reasons that you've decided to reach out.

To my mind, there is no 'one-size-fits-all' in therapy, and with my client at the centre of my practice, I will listen, hear and proactively adapt to your needs, with you, right next to you.

I'm under no illusion as to how difficult it must have been for you to recognise your own needs, and to begin to put yourself first - even though this might be hard for you to read - but the courage you've shown, just by looking on this site, needs recognition and encouragement to go one step further as you invest in your own future: I hope to hear from you.

Member organisations

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.
