About me

There are many reasons why someone may want to see a therapist, whether you are feeling depressed, are having difficulties with a relationship or feel like you just aren't who you used to be. Dealing with your problems alone can feel isolating. We all have difficulties in our lives and we react to these difficulties in very different ways. Therapy is a place to begin to understand your relationship with your difficulties and how this relationship affects your life.

I have been working as a psychotherapist and counsellor since 2011 and since that time, have supported over one thousand clients to better get a hold on their difficulties and lead a happier life. I work with adults, young people and children and I am experienced in working with a range of difficulties including neurodiversity, anxiety, depression, suicidal feelings, hallucinations, difficulties related to a caring role and LGBT+ issues. Sessions are directed by my clients and I think of therapy as a way for myself and my clients to learn about who they are and how they function in the outside world. By doing this we can look at how you can better live with and manage the things that are bringing you to therapy.

I typically see clients once weekly for 50 minutes and we can discuss over what period we see each other when we meet. Many clients find it helpful to see a therapist over a few years once they begin to learn more about themselves while others are content to have a smaller number of sessions. The choice is yours and something we can discuss in our first session. If you would like to learn more about yourself, call, text or email.

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.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
