About me

Are you currently struggling with anxiety, depression or low self-esteem? Do you ever feel stuck in your situation? Have you recently had a late diagnosis of ADHD in your adult life and wanting to process this? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then counselling can help. I am a qualified counsellor who can help you to make positive changes in your life. I provide a supportive, safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore any issues that you are currently experiencing.

I am passionate about self-care, self-esteem, self-love and many more aspects that focus on building on the relationship with the self. I believe that once we trust ourselves and create a safe place within ourselves, we are more capable of embracing the changes in our lives and we may find it easier to access our inner resources. Think about it, if you are encouraging, compassionate and supportive of yourself and you have trust in yourself, then it becomes much easier to do what you want to do and experience the world in a more positive light. I work in a way that promotes a healthy relationship with the self and I am able to tailor the sessions to each individual client.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a session, please get in touch.

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

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).
