Hello and welcome to my page,
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
My aim is to provide you with a safe space and the time for you to explore any topics or concerns you may wish to share with me in a confidential and non judgemental way of working.
I understand that life can present with many challenges and at times be difficult. Counselling will offer a space and a unique relationship with myself as counsellor to help aid and facilitator our work together.
I work with many theoretical approaches all of which differs according to your individual needs as each experience is unique and personal to us.
Through different experiences in life, I have been fortunate enough to practice and develop a variety of different skills, which I believe are transferable into my working client relationships with adults, children and young people. My passion for counselling came from my own experiences of therapy and my true belief that counselling can change lives.
Having worked for different counselling organisations has given me the invaluable opportunity to adapt to many different working protocols. Moreover, I have had the advantage to work amongst different age groups and communities, further enhancing my understanding and appreciation for both openness and empathy when validating individuals and their experiences.

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.
