About me

I am a Registered Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). I work with adults one-to-one on a short or long term basis. Flexible appointments are offered.

As an Integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a variety of counselling & psychotherapy models which are used together in a converging way rather than separate pieces which creates a tailor made therapy for the client.

With the support counselling offers, an understanding of how and why situations have an impact will develop and with this awareness you can begin to make positive changes to enhance/improve your everyday life allowing you to live it more fully.

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.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
