I am a fully qualified and accredited Humanistic 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 (E.g. Polyvagal theory, MBSR, Neuroscience) 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.
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)
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).
