About me

Counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore any issues that you may be struggling with. This may be something that is occurring right now, or you may find you want to understand your past. Regardless of what you want to explore, counselling will give you a confidential space to help you understand the issues you have.

I am an integrative counsellor. This means I will form a therapeutic relationship with you and provide a safe environment for you to freely explore the issues you may be experiencing. I work in a non-judgemental, empathic and person-centred way. I use cognitive behavioural techniques to introduce coping mechanisms that I believe will help you manage your difficulties. These can be used to help you influence a range of struggles such as low mood, depression, stress, worry and anxiety. 

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 professional working standard for my client work.

I have 8 years’ experience of working with clients within the mental health sector on a range of issues. I have a real interest in and experience of supporting people with losses such as bereavement, loss of identity and self-worth. From my personal experiences I understand how impactful these can be. I also have an interest in and experience of working with issues relating to traumatic childhood experiences and the impact this has on a person during adulthood.

Clients I have worked with have described me as non-judgemental, and have said I have helped them with their issues, in a friendly, professional and empathic way. 

I have accessed counselling previously, and I found the freedom to be myself in a safe setting very liberating. I understand the importance of seeing you as the expert and owner of your self-discovery.

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.
