About me

I offer a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgmental approach while addressing a broad range of mental health issues, personal and relationship difficulties.

I have a real passion for supporting parents carers struggling with mentally and physically/ unwell children/adolescents. For three years I ran and co-facilitated a support group for parents/carers of loved one's with an eating disorder. When children are unwell, parents often don't look after themselves, as understandably all their energies go into supporting their child. In my own personal experience, I found that self-care including therapy, enabled me to support my loved one in a healthier way.

I also have particular experience working with pregnancy, pregnancy loss, miscarriage, still birth, IVF and infertility. I have experience of supporting mothers with peri/post-natal depression, traumatic birth and the consequences. I am able to offer support for women throughout their pregnancy and post-natally.

Member organisations

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.
