About me

I am an integrative counsellor which means I believe the past, especially our relationship (or lack of relationship) with our parents/caregivers shapes the person we are today. As your counsellor I aim to provide a safe space for us to work through your issues, recognising and changing unhelpful beliefs with a view to helping you towards becoming your best self. I believe like a phoenix we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and it helps to have a counsellor who you feel is really in your corner.

I draw on the person-centred approach of counselling and the psychodynamic approach to help you tackle a wide range of issues that get in the way of your happiness and living your best life. I also use elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I believe in life no-one should have to suffer in silence and that no-one is beyond help if they are willing to work at it.  A lot of people, don't have someone to really listen to them and that's what I'm here for. In addition to that If you are committed I will be committed to helping you to rise up, stand tall and work towards becoming your best self!

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.
