I am primarily a person-centred counsellor but can also offer CBT techniques. I work with clients to form a therapeutic relationship to provide space for you to freely talk and explore the issues you may be experiencing. I provide a warm and safe environment to develop an understanding of yourself and facilitate any positive changes to enhance your well-being.
I have 4 years’ experience of working with clients within the mental health sector on a range of issues that was impacting their well-being. I work in a non-judgmental, empathetic way to facilitate the client to make sense of their issue.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to the Ethical Framework and Guidelines. As part of this I am required to attend regular monthly supervision to develop and maintain a good working standard for my client work.

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.
