I am often asked what I specialise in as a therapist, and my response is that I specialise in people. There could be many reasons which have brought you to this point. Perhaps something doesn’t feel right in your life; something has happened which is affecting you or you want to change something but aren’t sure how. Whatever the reason, the point is that you're here. I provide my clients with a confidential and non-judgemental space where they can explore their thoughts safely.
For counsellors/trainees - I have an Advanced Diploma in Supervision (NCP accredited) and can support counsellors at all stages of their training.

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.
