About me

Welcome, my name is Aoife, I am a BACP registered therapist based in West London.

Through my own personal experience and working as a counsellor I understand how life can be hard and we can struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Counselling allows us to work through that struggle together and help you to gain confidence in yourself and your decisions. I believe in the importance of learning how to navigate your brain, your way.

I use my qualifications to provide specialist counselling and psychotherapy to people who want to change their relationship with themselves and others, improve their self-confidence and find happiness and balance in their day to day lives.

I also use my creative background to help enhance my counselling work with clients who may find it useful. I may bring in creative methods of therapy such as art, writing and drama.

Member organisations


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.
