About me

It’s upsetting when you find you have no one to talk to or can’t find the words to express your thoughts. It may be that you don’t know what’s bothering you and talking to friends or loved ones hasn’t helped. I can offer a warm and safe space for you to explore your feelings and emotions without fear of judgement or dismissal.  

Counselling is a collaborative process where counsellor and client work together to build a strong and trusting relationship. Each session is tailored to your individual needs to facilitate change and healing.

How I work

I am an integrative counsellor which means that I draw on theories and strategies from the psychodynamic, CBT or humanistic schools of thought and use what is appropriate for you.

Clients I work with

Adults, young adults from 17+,

How I deliver counselling

Long or short term, phone, or Google Meet

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
