About me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I mainly work with a person-centred approach.

I believe the relationship between my client, and I is a unique and equal one, my client’s sense of personal power is of my upmost importance, my view of my client is that they are fully capable of accomplishing their own potential for growth.

​I offer you a warm, empathetic, and non-judgemental space, so you are able to feel listened to, understood and accepted. The space I offer is safe and confidential, a place where you can be yourself at a pace that is comfortable for you, you lead the way.

​Through your therapeutic journey of self-discovery, I can reassure you that I will be there to support you as you process making positive changes in your life. 

 I work with adults 18 years + covering a wide range of matters in question these include,  (but not exclusively),

Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger, Feeling Sad, Low self-confidence, Relationship Issues, Trauma, Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Rape both recent and historical, Separation and Divorce.

Member organisations

BACP
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).
