I believe that counselling heals through a safe relationship where you can discuss and explore your emotions and issues. I recognise the courage it takes to make that first contact, and while I will support you to find a way through your current distress I won’t tell you what you should do, or tie you into a lengthy contract.
Every client is a unique individual and I value and respect you for who you are. I won’t judge you.
"the curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am then I can change"

Working in a relational way I aim to help you to find acceptance in yourself as well as find your way forward.
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.

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).
