About me

Things aren't feeling quite right, maybe you feel pulled in different directions.  You might be struggling with a sense of fear and uncertainty, or wondering which way to go next. You may feel alone, sad, or generally low. Maybe you are struggling to find a sense of who 'you' are.  It could be that no matter how hard you try, life seems chaotic, confusing, or difficult. 

You could be excited to understand things a little more deeply. You might be ready for challenging self-work, and may have already started this process.  There could be aspects of your personality, feelings, or experiences which you haven't been able to share with others. Maybe you've not had the time to think some difficult things through, and now feels like the right time. 

My specialism is to understand deeply. Being offered this type of understanding may feel new or different. Understanding and connection is vital to therapy, as is our therapeutic relationship. Maybe therapy in the past hasn't been so helpful and you're willing to try a different kind of therapy. Therapy can be somewhere your needs can be expressed, and met. Somewhere it feels safe to be you

I believe we are made up of different parts which play important roles in making us who we are. Therapy can offer the chance to connect with new, or previously hidden, parts of who you are. I love to learn and understand about all of the different parts which make you 'you'. Not all aspects of who we are get the chance to be understood and cared for in everyday life. It can be troubling, or lonely,  when certain aspects of ourselves remain hidden or misunderstood.

Sometimes, the parts of us which seem the toughest to understand, or know, can be the parts we learn the most from. I love to learn and understand about all of you during our work together -  that's the journey I go on with my clients.

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.
