About me

I’d like to offer you a very warm welcome. I appreciate how difficult this may be for you initially reaching out, but whether you choose to work alongside me or not, well done for taking the first crucial step in asking for help. There’s no doubt, it’s the bravest thing you have done today.  

What I can offer

I’m a qualified humanistic psychotherapist and registered member of both the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society. I provide talking therapy, very much tailored to meet your individual needs. I offer a warm, non-judgemental, confidential, safe space for you to off load and explore experiences that only you truly understand. You hold the key to your future happiness. You have the power to unlock your past, releasing thoughts and feelings that you may have chosen to keep hidden from those closest to you. 

My experience

I have over 20 years’ experience of working alongside neurodiverse children and young people who have suffered trauma and abuse. I also work for two charities counselling adults: one offering counselling to members of the BAME community, including victims of human trafficking and modern slavery and the second, receiving referrals from GPs.  I have also had the privilege of supporting friends and family members of young men held in prison.

I have walked alongside the most wonderful and brave clients with differing issues, some involving anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD, gender identity, behaviour disorders, self-harm, anorexia and domestic violence. Each time I meet a new client, I am humbled by their courage and commitment to improve their life.

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.
