About me

If you’re reading these lines, maybe you’re at a point in your life where you are asking yourself some questions, or maybe something’s happened recently or in the past and you’re struggling to make sense of it; maybe you’re looking for change.

Whatever your situation, I believe that therapy can be a safe space to wonder about oneself and the world. So often we look for meaning elsewhere when it’s right in front of us.

I follow an existential approach: this means that I focus on your unique experience of yourself and the world, and your meaning-making processes. You will not find in me someone to tell you what to do: I treasure being able to work with my clients as equals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have achieved a Master’s degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling and are working towards an Advanced Diploma now. I am a registered member of the BACP and a trainee member of the UKCP

Member organisations

BACP

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.
