About me

Can't sleep at night? Not feeling like yourself? Finding it difficult to cope with life changing events? Struggling with anger/low self esteem/relationship. Counselling can help you explore these issues and make better sense of your feelings.

Working with young people and adults, I tackle a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, loneliness, abuse, stress, self esteem, relationship struggles etc. I believe people can be empowered to overcome any emotional difficulty, as a fully qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist, aiming to provide a high quality yet affordable counselling helping individuals to increase self confidence and develop strong satisfying relationship with friends and family, providing tools/strategies to overcome life challenges in a safe confidential non judgmental atmosphere.

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.
