About me

I am a dedicated, enthusiastic and compassionate counsellor and psychotherapist with extensive experience, working with children, adolescents, adults, parents and families who is registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I believe that therapy is a powerful tool which will help people to heal, refocus and progress in a healthier and more productive way. I offer a warm, caring relationship without judgement and provide a safe space to explore a variety of difficulties.

My work is integrative which includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Existential Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I combine approaches to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. This offers a unique treatment to each individual.

There are times in our lives where we all experience life situations and events that feel overwhelming and difficult to cope with. It may create anger, anxiety, stress and a feeling of powerless within your daily routine. These times can be very lonely. Searching for a counsellor is the first brave step toward change.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
