Hello, I am a BA (Hons) qualified and experienced counsellor.
Sometimes life can be confusing, difficult, or just overwhelming. There can be times when you are unable to get to the root of what’s troubling you.
I’m here to listen to you, to come alongside you with whatever you decide to bring to counselling. I believe that providing a safe and confidential space is an important aspect of us working together as we reflect on and work through any discomfort or recurring issues that you may be experiencing.
Training, qualifications & experience

Member of the BACP
CONTINUAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Solution Focused Brief Therapy
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work
I have experience of working with different issues, in a safe, non-judgemental space. I am trained to use different theories such as Gestalt, Humanistic and person-centred to provide an integrative relational experience.
Due to the current situation, the unpredictability of lockdown and government guidelines, I am only able to offer online counselling at this present time.
The first step will be to make an appointment by email or telephone. After our first discussion, you can decide if counselling is for you. I acknowledge this can feel a little bit daunting and I recognise the courage it takes to make that first call.
