About me

Life can get pretty tough. You may feel stuck, directionless and generally dissatisfied. Or you may be struggling with something specific, a difficult situation, anxiety or circumstances that feel overwhelming and out of control. Likewise, you might be experiencing difficulties in relationships, feel isolated or struggling with the way you see/feel about yourself in one way or another.

Any of these may be a signal that it’s time to look beyond yourself to help make sense of your feelings or situation and find some kind of resolution.

This is where I may be able to help.

Training, qualifications & experience

Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

I offer Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling which draws on a broad base of theoretical models and techniques. However, the founding principle underpinning my practice is that many of the difficulties we experience in the present are rooted in the past.

I have completed a Post Graduate Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling and am currently working towards an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.

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.
