About me

Are you feeling emotional and struggling with everyday life? Or have suffered a loss of someone close? And feeling overwhelming of different thoughts?

This will mean exploring how your feelings are, from your past or evaluate your current concerns, and your goals can be established in your expectations and coming to terms and understanding why you feel these feelings and to face their difficulties to help move forward and where you want to be in the future.

Counselling can help with a lot of emotional stress and anxiety and what you have to deal within your everyday life, and we can work through your thoughts and anxiety.

I am a qualified counsellor and offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment and have extensive experience in;

  • Complex trauma/PTSD

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.
