About me

I offer counselling in dealing with all facets of life, including challenges faced by caring for an elderly family member, support for parents and siblings of children and young adults on the Autism spectrum and counselling victims of, and those affected by abuse.

I offer an integrated approach which means that I use different counselling theories in my work as appropriate to the client and issues that they present with.

I offer a non-judgmental respectful space with a genuine desire for us to work together to help you to better understand your self and support you to make your own decisions.

I aim to support my clients in dealing with past and present in order to improve coping and general quality of life.

I will make myself available to anyone who needs a listening ear.

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.
