About me

I can help you build your confidence and feel safe. I provide an open and honest space for you to explore your issues and ideas. You may have relationship or family issues, need to work on your self-esteem or need someone who understands to listen. I believe we all have the capacity to grow forward and I will provide an environment and support to help you move forward. I help clients nurture self-compassion in the face of self criticism.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 4 diploma in counselling.  As part of a MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have studied archetypes, nature therapy and self-criticism. 

I have a private practice and work for a larger counselling organisation as well as having experience within a school setting working with young adults (12+).

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.
