About me

I am an experienced Person Centred therapist and Registered Member of BACP working with young people (12+) and adults. I offer space to talk and hear, to be quiet or loud. I have materials to play with, soothe or work with if you like, or leave them out the way completely. 

I offer a 20-minute Zoom meeting, phone call or instant message / DM without charge so you can ask questions and get an idea of me. Get in touch.

I'm currently working online & by phone. Seeing people again in person soon.

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.
