About me

If your life has been affected by trauma, I'm here to help

I can help you deal with issues from the past, if you are feeling overwhelmed, stuck or disconnected. If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression or having difficulty in your relationships.

If you feel that you aren’t able to fully express your feelings and are feeling lonely and isolated, I can offer you a place where you feel heard and understood.

It can be hard to deal with feelings and issues alone. I’ll be with you to support you to explore your feelings and the problems you are experiencing in a calm, accepting, non-judgemental space.

We can work together and I can be by your side as you talk about what you need to work through. Talking things through can help you recognise the resources you have within yourself and be able to look to the future. 

Beginning counselling is a brave step but can be a huge source of relief

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.

Accredited register membership
