I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor, my aim is to provide for you a warm, safe and supportive space, in which I offer an opportunity for you to talk about and explore issues that are troubling you. This supported exploration may help you to gain new perspectives and empower you to make positive changes in your life.
Today, I work in Private Practice as well as offering my services to the charity, MIND as a clinical Supervisor and more recently I have had the opportunity to work freelance offering my counselling services to Atrium HR, working remotely with expatriates. This has extended my knowledge culturally providing a broader and more diverse view of the world.
I provide counselling for adults and young people. Supervision for qualified Counsellors, students and other professions.
If you are unsure whether Counselling is right for you or you have any questions about any aspect of my service, I offer an initial 15 minute consultation to explore and clarify your needs. There is no fee for this time.

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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
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.
