I am a fully qualified Person Centred therapist, working empathically and without judgement to create a safe therapeutic environment. I am motivated towards deepening my understanding of my clients experience to work with the ‘unspoken’ to both develop and deepen self-awareness. I help clients find their voice and together, explore ways they can live life more fully. I work in private practice with adults, young people and children, adhering to the BACP's* ethical framework. Please do contact me if you have any questions about how I work or what to expect from a therapeutic relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Metanoia Institute, obtaining a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and BSc in Reflective Practice. I am part of a Learning Circle Rethinking Trauma and am committed to CPD programs that are relevant to my work and deepen my experience in post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, anger, self-esteem, self-harm, bereavement, learning disorders and more. Aswell as private practice, I work in a counselling clinic with adults and am a counsellor for a secondary school, working with adolescents. I have also previously worked counselling young adults in a university environment.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
