About me

It’s good to talk…right?  But it’s not always easy to.  If we are lucky we have someone in our life that we can express our inner most fears/worries and find solutions.  We may even be lucky enough to have that special person in our life who understands us and helps us make changes to smooth out the path of our lives.  The problem is we tend to compare how other people cope with problems and feel inadequate if they appear to be able to carry on through life seemingly undeterred by events while you struggle to come to terms with the disturbances of life.

Having someone to talk to who will understand and empathise, without judgment is the first step to help you understand your struggle and find within yourself ways to overcome the difficulties and challenges of life’s events.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.  My training covered CBT, Person Centred and Psychodynamic; I use all 3 theories’ in my work focussing on the approach that best suits my client.  I can offer you a safe space to explore the unsettled parts of your life and support you in developing the ability to cope with the issues that causes you to struggle.

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
