At the time of reading this you have probably scrolled through lots of profiles like this one and are now thinking "How on earth do I choose a counsellor out of all of these people who all say similar things?" It can be really tough to reach out for support in the first place and then you are faced with yet another hard decision!
I am a person centred counsellor which means I'm not here to tell you what to do. The way I see it, people who reach out for counselling often already feel like they have a ball of tangled wool in their head so I'm here to support you to untangle things in your own way and in your own time.
Having studied psychology before I qualified as a counsellor, I realise that the brain is a pretty complex thing and it is normal to need to reach out for help to understand ourselves and the world we live in sometimes. Not everyone finds it easy to ask for support or even understands how counselling can help, but in my own personal journey, I have seen real proof that no matter what people face in life there is always hope to make sense of it with the right support.
That leads us to the question of whether I'm the right counsellor for you, and I guess no one really knows from reading a short profile. The one thing I can guarantee though, is that I have experience working with both young people and adults from all walks of life and I always do my best to meet individual needs and create a space where people feel safe to open up about whatever they need to. I believe in supporting people to the best of my ability and if it turns out that I am not the right counsellor for you, I will be more than happy to help you to understand what is the right type of support for you.
I am always keen to answer questions and queries, so if you are left with any uncertainty after reading this profile, please feel free to contact me.

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.

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).
