About me

I offer therapy to both individuals and couples. I aim to provide you a safe, non judgmental and confidential space to explore whatever it is you are struggling with at your own pace. I believe that through exploration of your life experiences, it is possible to make changes when sometimes it can feel as though there is no hope. It takes a great deal of courage to seek out help and I believe that times of despair or crisis also provide significant opportunity for growth. So be it anxiety, depression or any other issue you would like to share, please send me an email or call and we can discuss arranging an initial appointment. We can then discuss how you would like to go forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my MSc in Therapeutic Counselling in 2015 and am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also hold a PG Diploma in Transpersonal Couple Counselling (2018). I have over 10 years experience in various different roles within residential, community and NHS mental health services. This work has made me experienced in working with many different issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement. I am also trained to see couples and am also accredited with the Foundation for Infant Loss.


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.

Accredited register membership
