About me

Experiencing difficulties in life is something we all face at one time or another. When those difficulties affect our lives significantly, we can feel overwhelmed by them. At such times it is only natural to seek help. 

By deciding to begin therapy with a qualified professional means you have already taken your first step toward personal change and growth. Making that first step though, can be daunting and full of uncertainty. Part of my role is to help you understand what counselling is and what it isn’t and to help you feel more confident in making sure it is right for you. 

As a qualified professional, I will provide you with a safe space in which you can speak freely and with confidence that what you say is being heard without judgement.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

I believe we all have the capacity within ourselves to make change and improve our lives. I can help you connect with that part of yourself, to make sense of what troubles you and ultimately, to find the answers you need. I work with both short- and long-term counselling depending on your needs. For some a few sessions is enough to work through a specific problem. For others, perhaps with more complex issues, therapy can last months, even years. Some clients may take a break but return to counselling many times. 

We are all unique beings, and our challenges and solutions are just as unique too. My approach brings in various models of counselling and therapy and my aim is always to offer the right therapy to match your needs. I work in a very open way and will always welcome conversation about the process we work through together.
