About me

Hello and welcome. I know it may be difficult to ask for help when you feel uncertain, my counselling approach is based on the idea that you understand your own world best, by me providing you with a non judgemental space for you to speak and be listened to.

The therapy is client led, meaning that is up to you what you would like to explore. My approach is to support you on your journey to explore Thoughts and feelings in a safe confidential place.

I am passionate about working as a counsellor forming a warm and connected Relationship remains the Heart of what i do. As a humanistic person - Centred Counsellor I begin with the view that however life looks we are all fundamentally, oriented towards Growth and fulfilment.

Member organisations

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.
