About me

As a person centred therapist, I  provide a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and emotions at times of difficulty and change, to identify triggers or places where you might feel stuck. Together we can work through, understand and process your feelings.  I work face to face, online, 1 to 1 and with groups.

This is your time, if you  would like to, we can use strategies including relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques to support you to manage stress and anxiety. 

I am a MBACP registered Therapist with a BSC in Psychology and qualifications in Coaching, mentoring and teaching. I’m an experienced Counsellor, and have worked with adults and with young people in secondary schools as well as being a bereavement volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Services.

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.
