About me

How do I work?

I work integratively and plan with the client how to tailor therapy to meet their needs and goals. I generally see clients in my private therapy office but this can be changed to a communal space when required. I also see clients via Zoom.

I generally see clients for a brief consultation session, free of charge, as a way for you to 'get a feel' for who I am and to see if it seems like a good fit for us to work together. In this session I would run through the ways in which I work with clients and it gives you an opportunity to ask any questions. After this initial session our work together can begin and we would probably start with me finding out in more depth about your background and what your goals for therapy are. From there we start the journey towards those goals together.

Please get in contact to find out more about how I work or to book a consultation session.

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.

Key details

My private office has a step up to it but for those to whom this can cause a barrier I can offer therapy in communal spaces or via zoom.
