About me

I work with clients in a collaborative way to encourage and empower the client. 

My aim is to support, listen and be an impartial soundboard. Feeling heard can be powerful and can help you to process issues and allow you to move forward. 

Acknowledging that you need help and then reaching out for therapy can often be one of the hardest steps to take but using that courage and strength can change your life for the better. I provide a safe and non judgmental space where you can share your deepest emotions. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and also use solution focused brief therapy. I tailor the modality to the client and use the approach which is best suited to the individual.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling Profession (MBACP).

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
