About me

If you are considering counselling, you are probably experiencing some form of difficulty in your life at the moment. You may be struggling with relationship issues, a lack of meaning or purpose in life, or be living with anxiety, depression, guilt or shame, all influenced by your own unique life experience and context. I am aware how personal and difficult it can be to find the right counsellor, so I really hope to answer some of your questions to help you in your decision.

My core modality is the person-centred approach. This means that I aim to offer you a warm, safe space where I welcome the whole of you and whatever you feel is important. You are free here to explore thoughts and feelings. While unable to advise or guide you, I will be there alongside you to support you without judgement, with acceptance and kindness.

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to starting Counselling and Psychotherapy training I had over 20 years of experience supporting a range of individuals experiencing difficulties with their mental health, from chronic illness within the community to complex mental health difficulties within more secure settings. I have experience supporting people across the lifespan.

In addition to classical face to face counselling I offer outdoor or walk and talk sessions as I believe in the great benefits such environments can offer us. I am also happy to meet clients via online sessions. It is important to me to meet people where they are, as best I can, everyone is unique.

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.
