I am a qualified adolescent and adult counsellor and offer a confidential, non-judgemental space to talk through your difficulties and challenges which you may be experiencing. My warm and empathetic approach will give you the space to be listened to and heard, to work through any confusion or anxieties you may be facing.
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor., using elements of different approaches dependent on your needs. This can include a person-centered approach where you are the expert of yourself and through exploration you can come to terms with any negative feelings and change and develop in your own way. The psychodynamic approach explores how your current feelings and relationships are shaped by your past. Through exploration and gaining a great understanding of yourself, can lead you to make the changes needed to grow your confidence and look at things from a different perspective.

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
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).
