About me

Together we can work through difficult  issues  within life. Sometimes we just can’t make sense of things, to have an empathic counselling relationship that feels safe and trusting can be so valuable. I can help with discussing and processing loss of any kind, helping you to move forward and manage your day to day life. I have volunteered at my local hospice for a number of years, this experience has allowed me to have had first hand insight into the effects of a terminal health diagnosis and the impact this can have in the entire family network.

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.

I will always try to be as flexible as possible and online appointments can sometimes be a good option if face to face is not feasible. 

Further information

My hospice work has given me a valuable insight into the trauma and shock that can be associated with loss of any kind. Also in today’s world many of my clients struggle with depression, anxiety and day to day stress, managing this on a daily basis can be extremely hard.
I would really like to help.
