About me

People come to counselling because they may be dealing with feelings of loss and grief, or that they keep being reminded of abuse they suffered from during childhood and are still struggling with the pain today. Working through these painful events together can help you to become more empowered and give you the tools to make positive changes to lead a happier and healthier life.  

I am able to provide psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples who are looking to deal with a range of emotional, relational and psychological problems.  I will listen carefully to your story whilst obtaining an understanding of you and what is troubling you. 

I am a Certified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist (CTA).  I hold a Master's (Level 7) in TA psychotherapy and a Diploma in TA counselling. I am a registered UKCP psychotherapist, and a member of BACP, UKATA and EATA. 

I am starting a Diploma in Supervision course in January 2022.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
