About me

There are many reasons why someone might reach out for counselling; a challenging life event, seeking self-discovery or needing to speak through relationship challenges to name but a few. I believe that it is my role as a counsellor to journey alongside my client to explore issues, thoughts and feelings and to work towards achieving their therapeutic goals.

I work from a holistic and integrative perspective drawing on various theories and approaches to form the basis of my practice. This means that I am able to use a variety of approaches such as CBT, Mindfulness and Creative Therapies to suit my client’s individual needs. I provide a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space for clients to be able to share freely.

I am currently able to offer long and short-term therapy.

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.
