About me

Have you ever found yourself feeling like your going around in circles repeating  the same patterns of behaviour for example in relationships or life in general? If so, this is where counselling can help by offering you a safe confidential and non-judgemental space to explore these further to help you reflect on your life choices,  which is often difficult in our fast-moving world.  I believe passionately that counselling can play an important part in maintaining our physical and emotional wellbeing.

I am a Therapeutic Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy with nearly twenty years’ experience of working in both the statutory and charitable sector with adults, young people and families. My practice is specifically tailored to individual need and I incorporated both creative and CBT techniques.

Most recently I have been providing counselling in schools and for a healthcare provider that provides bereavement services. I have experience in children’s mental health and addiction services. I have a specific interest in bereavement and working with young people and families

Counselling can be useful for:

  • Managing change
  • Gaining insight and understanding into yourself and others
  • Working through feelings
  • Improving relationships
  • Making life choices

Types of difficulties may include:

• Relationship difficulties
• Bereavement
• Anxiety and stress
• Depression
• Addiction
• Trauma
• Anger
• Self harm
• Abuse
• Low self esteem

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BACP Certificate of Proficiency
  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Psychodynamic)
  • Postgraduate diploma in Psychotherapy Studies
  • Certificate in Creative Art Therapy

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.
