Welcome! Thank you for looking at my profile.
The key to your therapy being a success is the relationship between us. I am here to really listen to you and hear your story and help you offload your difficult feelings of sadness, guilt, shame, anger, depression, grief and anxiety. I will provide a safe non-judgmental environment for you to release trapped emotions and help you find meaning in your life and re-create the life you would like to be leading.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, Diploma in Counselling Diploma. I am a registered member of the BACP. I am currently working as a college lecturer in counselling, as well in a Men's Category B prison. Previously I used to counsel students aged 16+ at a local college. I spent two years volunteering for CHUMS and underwent their bereavement training, going into schools seeing children on a one to one basis. I also helped run anxiety and bereavement workshops.
I have spent 30 years in childcare and am a qualified Montessori Teacher. I have also practised as a complementary therapist and am a qualified Reflexologist, Aromatherapist and Reiki practitioner.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
