About me

You may be thinking about getting in touch but feeling uncertain as to whether counselling is for you. There may be particular experiences, recent or in the past, which you are struggling to cope with; bereavement, divorce, redundancy or other major life event. Perhaps things just don’t feel right and you don’t understand why.

I offer a safe and confidential environment where you are free to explore what is troubling you without fear of judgement.

I can support you to gain insight into how early experiences and significant events in your life might be affecting you in the present, helping you to see things from a different perspective and discover ways of bringing about positive changes in your life.

Specialisms include counselling for trauma, bereavement and loss.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy).

I am qualified in Psychodynamic Counselling which forms the foundation of my practice and I work to the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and its' Professional Conduct Procedures.

In addition I have undertaken further specialist training in Bereavement Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

In parallel with private practice I have worked in a local hospice, counselling adults experiencing grief and loss following the death of loved ones.

I also worked for several years in a local counselling centre supporting adults experiencing a variety of emotional difficulties including anxiety, anger, depression, stress and the effects of trauma.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
