About me

Currently completing the Level 6 Diploma in Clinical Supervision and offering low-cost online or in person supervision while I am in training.

I believe that at times, we all struggle with life difficulties and need someone who understand and sees us.  There can be huge barriers to fairness in our society and this, along with the pressures of relationships, social media, work and expectations of others, can reduce our ability to cope alone.  I believe that counselling can play a key role in helping us navigate these difficulties and face the future with a little more optimism.  

I have experience of working with adults facing life difficulties and concerns including anxiety, work problems and sex and relationship difficulties.  I work with survivors of trauma, abuse and sexual violence.
 
Having spent 20 years in the corporate world I feel I have a good insight into the financial, work and personal development challenges that can affect us all.

I offer short or long-term counselling for adults in a non-judgemental and safe space.

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.
