I understand that taking the first step to ask for help takes courage. You may feel anxious and not knowing what to expect. I will invite you for a FREE initial consultation where we can discuss your goals and expectations. This is a good opportunity for us to get to know each other, ask questions and see whether we can work together.
Throughout our counselling sessions you can find new ways of coping, create your own solutions and find acceptance. I am here to empower you with the right tools so that you can make changes for yourself. I believe that every person is both different and unique in their own way, whilst facing their own difficulties. That is why I adjust my work around Your individual needs.
I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor offering counselling to individuals and couples.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
