I’m a qualified humanistic counsellor with a focus in person-centred counselling, a talking therapy that promotes self-understanding and acceptance. As a person-centred therapist I look to establish a therapeutic relationship with you based upon empathy, authenticity and unconditional positive regard. This approach recognises the importance of our individual life experiences and the unique ways in which they impact us. Working together we can revisit experiences to understand their significance and move towards greater self-understanding and acceptance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied Humanistic Counselling at the University of Chichester, focusing in Person-centred therapy. I have experience of supporting clients with various issues such as childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, life change and loss, illness and bereavement. I also provide counselling for Victim Support and a Carers’ Charity. Counselling provides a safe, confidential space to reflect upon past or present experiences that are impacting our wellbeing.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

To get the most out of counselling it's important to find a counsellor that is a good fit for you. To enable this, I offer a free 20-minute 'taster' when we can discuss your reasons for considering counselling and I can answer any questions you may have. This conversation usually takes place via Zoom or by telephone. My hope is that this will also enable you to decide whether I'm the right counsellor to help you.
