How Counselling/Psychotherapy can help you
I offer you a safe and confidential relationship without judgement, supporting you in discussing your concerns which may be difficult to share with friends and family.
I can help you to see things more clearly enabling you to explore your own choices. This will allow you to make changes in your life or come to terms with difficult experiences.
I can also help you manage issues such as depression, anxiety, work stress, bereavement, trauma, low self esteem, anger, eating disorders or health problems.
The way I work
My approach is integrative enabling me to offer a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs. I place importance on developing a trusting relationship enabling you to work through your issues, regularly reviewing our work together to help you to achieve your full potential.
I work with individuals over 18 at my private practice.
I have a special interest and experience of working with eating disorders, body image issues, compulsive eating, cravings management, binging, and failed dieting. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Eating Disorders and Obesity with the National Centre for Eating Disorders.

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 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
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.
