About me

Sometimes in life we need support. I provide a confidential, non-judgemental, encouraging space to talk and work together. 

I work with clients with a wide range of reasons to seek counselling – often  those who have experienced something difficult or who have become stuck.

Their reasons for seeking counselling include anxiety, OCD, stress, addiction, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, transgender issues, sexual issues and sexual assault, trauma, low confidence and self esteem and childhood trauma.

I have a Diploma in Adlerian Counselling. Adlerian psychology places the individual at the core of change, encouraging and supporting understanding of childhood logic and patterns of behaviour to enable progress and change in the present. Together we work on identifying the areas in which you are stuck or struggling to focus the work on understanding what you need and how to get there. Insight + Action = Change.

I have a background in consultancy and support services and have volunteered in crisis support. I have a wide range of experience of working with people in different industries with different problems.

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.
