About me

About me

I am an experienced, qualified counsellor that offers support to adults couples and young people. 

Feeling lost, desperate, craving connection and deeper meaningful relationships is something I can support with and work towards together. 

Sometimes life can present obstacles and challenges that affect both our personal and or professional lives in an undesired way. These could look like, wanting more for yourself but not having the energy or desire to achieve your goals. Self-sabotaging behaviours such as making decisions based on fear or lack of trust and affected sleep and/or eating habits. 

I aim, by working together with individuals and couples to create a safe, warm, confidential and understanding environment to explore the concerns and needs in a non-judgmental manner.

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.
