About me


Thank you for viewing my information.

I provide an evening and weekend in-person, online, email or telephone psychotherapy service. I use an integrative/pluralistic form of psychotherapy. This means my focus is upon collaboration and finding what is right for you in terms of therapy. This is enabled through forming a therapeutic relationship based on trust, warmth, respect, empathy and unconditional positive regard. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe therapeutic space for you to talk about, understand and find helpful ways to move forward in your life.

I have worked in the field of mental health for over 15 years supporting people to recover and find new meaning in their lives as a mental health nurse in clinical practice, academia as a lecturer in mental health, and at present, I work as a therapist for the NHS. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Member organisations

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.
