About me

I am currently available for face to face, telephone and online video sessions. Please contact me if you would like to talk, and be heard...

Difficult feelings may relate to depression, panic, anxiety, relationships, work stress, chronic or life-threatening illness and more. I aim to help by providing a safe, confidential & non-judgemental space. Focusing on what you bring to each session - the emphasis of our relationship is based on trust & respect.

Together, we can explore whatever it is that brings you to counselling, and hopefully help you to make sense of things; perhaps coming to a different, more helpful understanding of yourself and your life circumstances. This may enable you to recognise, and reconnect with, your true self; which often clarifies direction in life.

I believe we are all motivated by the need to realise our full potential, and this may be affected by experiences throughout life including childhood, family relationships, social environment, work, illness, bereavement & more.

I have current experience of working in an NHS setting, cancer support, private practice and high schools. You may choose to work short or long-term, this is totally up to you. Short-term tends to have more focus on a specific issue. Longer-term work can explore a variety of issues which may be causing you difficulty; trying to understand how they affect your life may enable you to make changes which could help. Sessions are reviewed regularly to meet your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Person-Centred & Integrative Counsellor (BSc Hons), registered member of the BACP, and am fully insured. Over the last 6 years I have worked with adult clients, young people and organisations (EAP), presenting a multiplicity of issues; these including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, work-related issues, panic disorder, self-harm, suicidal ideation, addiction, bereavement, life-threatening illness and terminal illness.

I have experience of working in a variety of settings including NHS, private practice, cancer care and high schools. I keep my qualifications current by attending regular continuing professional development (CPD) events and workshops. I have monthly supervision to ensure that I am working to professional standards in line with ethical requirements, to provide a beneficial counselling service.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
