About me

I believe our mental health and well being are the most important aspects of our lives.  

It can be a struggle as we try to balance home and work life, maintain healthy relationships, feel good about ourselves or just get through the day. Sometimes the past has a grip on us so we are unable to find peace or lasting happiness. Talking to someone and beginning to make sense of what we are feeling and how we arrived here can be the start of positive change and a path forward. 

I have spent many years volunteering for well known charities providing emotional support for people in crisis and/or also struggling with trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, bereavement, loss of purpose, mental health & well-being and relationship breakdowns.  I am frequently asked if I can continue to provide my services outside of this volunteering work, as the support or the number of sessions is often time limited. This is what I have set out to do and is the reason I am here. 

We are all unique as is the support that we need. Therapy can be challenging but it might be the most important journey you embark on.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
