About me

Hi, thanks for reading my profile, I practice in Cardiff, am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP (accred)]. I offer face to face appointments in a relaxed confidential space, I also work online or via the telephone. My practice as a therapist has allowed me to work with clients of all ages from all backgrounds with wide ranging issues.

Life is good at throwing problems our way and counselling can help to make sense of what’s happening. I enjoy working with clients so that they achieve their goals, I pay attention to what is happening in your world right now, what is influencing your life and thoughts and work to improve your quality of life and work life balance. Giving you a space where you can be heard and respected, coach you to overcome the challenges of modern life.

I can work with you if you are troubled by Depression, Anxiety, Relationship issues, thinking of separation or divorce, suffering Addiction, family conflict, panic attacks or low mood. These are just a sample of the many areas that counselling can help with. Together we can explore ways to improve your well being.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
