About me

I am in private practice situated in a discreet rural location on the Kent and Sussex borders. The towns Edenbridge, Crowborough, East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells are all close by. Whether you need support, are having difficult life experiences, suffering from low mood, anxiety, behavioural or relationship problems counselling can be beneficial to everyone.

During these challenging times where face-to-face meetings may not be possible I am able to offer online therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified therapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I have also completed a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Skills and Theory and trained in Suicide Prevention,

My experience ranges from counselling children and young people in educational settings as well as charity organisations working with substance misuse and carers.

I have worked with a variety of people from all walks of life with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Loss, Abuse, Self-Harm and Low self-esteem.

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.
