I am an experienced Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space to help you explore your anxieties, difficulties, feelings and behaviours.
My therapeutic practice is humanistic and I therefore value your individuality and unique experiences. My role is to help you to explore your thoughts, feeling and behaviours so that you are able to better understand how you relate to yourself, others and the world around you. By creating a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship I can support you through your difficulties and help you along your journey towards becoming more self-aware and self-accepting. My approach is pluralistic which means I am also informed by other theories and methods to best suit your individual needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am fully qualified and hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I have specific training in bereavement and loss, expressive arts, existential counselling, menopause and counselling in a diverse society.
I practice within the BACP ethical framework and hold an Enhanced DBS certificate. I value diversity and individuality and my practice is non-discriminatory.
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.

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).

Concessions offered for
Research shows that the relationship between the counsellor and client has a huge impact on therapy outcomes and I therefore offer an initial chat either in person, over the phone or via Zoom. It is an opportunity for us to meet, discuss how therapy works, talk about your hopes for therapy, and for you to ask me questions.
