- I am an integrative counsellor, using a variety of techniques and methods to help clients realise and work with their issues and problems.
- I specialise in anxiety, trauma, stress, depression and bereavement and have had a great deal of success helping people regain and find their desired quality of life.
- I work holistically in a non-judgemental and I believe that counselling is a collaborative process where my role is to listen and help you to become the person you want to be.
- I work exclusively online in the evenings, so I can fit around people's busy professional lives and provide you with space and time to consider yourself and what you want.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working with a mental health charity for 4 years and work online in private practice with adults. I have a BSc in Psychology, Level 4 Advanced diploma in Counselling and am certified to work in online and telephone counselling.
The professional bodies of which I am a member are the National Counselling Society (NCS) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
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.
National Counselling Society (NCS)
The National Counselling Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.

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).

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. " - Andy Warhol
I strongly believe that when people are prepared to be brave and are ready to change they can. Using integrative techniques and creativity I aim to create a secure space where you can say what you need to say and be supported to face things which are uncomfortable for you to acknowledge. I am here for you to work at whatever pace you need to find and make those changes.
