About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist who supports individuals with a range of difficulties. The Therapy sessions I provide combine the use of three different therapeutic approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-centred and Attachment. Therapy is led by yourself and I guide you through the sessions to support you in achieving your required goals. 

I offer counselling sessions within an office, over the phone/online and on a walk and talk basis. I hope that this variety of options enables many people wanting to engage in counselling the opportunity to do so. 

Training, qualifications & experience

My career started within the education sector. From here I realised that counselling was the career route I wanted to go down as I have always been passionate about supporting others in times of need. Therefore I retrained as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and since doing so have never looked back. I am now a fully qualified Psychotherapist with an MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have gained a variety of experience in differing roles, from organisations, to colleges and private practice. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.
