About me

I am a fully qualified and British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered person-centred counsellor/psychotherapist, therefore I hold the client at the centre of all sessions.BA Hon​

I have much experience in working with a wide range of life complexities such as anxiety, depression, mental health disorders and trauma, to name a few. 

It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and therapist alike.

Experiencing a therapeutic relationship, being heard within any self-defeating behaviour, beliefs or views and facing any feelings of sadness, fear, grief, trauma or pain can bring life-altering results.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA Hons Degree - Person-Centred Counselling

I have worked with clients experiencing many of life's challenges or dark places, depression, grief, anxiety, low moods, and stresses and have worked with complex mental health diagnosis and trauma; this includes vulnerable offenders and those accessing mental health services.

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.

Accredited register membership

I work face to face but also offer online or via telephone sessions as this allows clients the security of their own home and removes barriers of travel or distance when engaging in therapy.
