About me

Hello and a warm welcome to you!

I know it isn’t easy to seek out help during difficult times and a lot of the time we choose to suffer alone in our thoughts. I too have been where you are. Therefore, I hope to share some useful information to alleviate your anxieties and allow you to make an informed decision about the type of support you are seeking.

I  am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means that I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. 

As a therapist I offer a warm and non-judgemental approach keeping you at the centre of our work. Life is sometimes complicated and intense, therapy can provide a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace to that suits you.

I offer an empathic and professional approach, walking side by side in your journey to a more peaceful mindset. I have experience of working with a range of challenging mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, relationship conflicts and more. With a speciality in Addiction.

Member organisations

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.
