About me

Living Life can be difficult and painful at times and choosing a counsellor can be a daunting process, so now you are here who do you choose?

Chances are, if you’re here, you want something to be different in your life, and may already have tried very hard to make these changes, but have become stuck and frustrated.

My core belief is: We are not sick trying to get well, but instead, hurt, trying to heal.

It is my desire to help you find the power within yourself to navigate through these times with more awareness and insight. To help you express and explore your feelings and beliefs and to assist you through your own unique journey.

I believe we all have the power to make change but sometimes need a little help along the way.

So do you have concerns you would like to explore with someone not involved in your day to day life, in a safe, calm environment that is non-judgmental, caring and respectful?

Let's make change happen together.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

people's problems are more often cross cutting than specific, therefore I put the person at the centre of the work and follow what they bring into the counselling session.

When appropriate I draw upon creativity to facilitate the counselling process eg art, writing, music, eco- therapy.
