About me

Something at this moment in time has triggered you into looking for a counsellor, you might be wondering if it can help? Will it give you the answers you are looking for - I suffer with anxiety - no one understands me - I feel all alone - I don’t want to be judged.

I am passionate about counselling and the benefit that talking therapy can bring. I believe that everyone has the potential to change, grow, heal and lead a happier and more fulfilling life.

I am a warm, kind and experienced BACP registered counsellor trained in the Person-Centred Approach. I can offer you a safe and confidential space for you to explore and identify what’s holding you back, to understand yourself better, explore potential change and see how you can get your needs met.

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.
