** Update: As of October 2020 I have been awarded accreditation by the BACP for consistently meeting their higher standards of competency and ethics **
I am a passionate counsellor who believes everyone has the ability to grow and flourish as an individual.
My aim is for you to feel comfortable enough to open up about anything that is troubling you; I will tailor my approach to your needs and we'll work together to build your awareness, this is to identify patterns of behaviours and understand how your past choices impact your present life.
Therapy will last as long as you feel it's needed, I can cater for short term or long term counselling.
My practice is located in the beautiful town of Henley-on-Thames.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
