About me

** 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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
