About me

Worried about how you are feeling? Are you experiencing a whirring of your mind and don't know how to stop it and where to get help? It can be anxiety-provoking not to know what the next step is. How about a free 20-minute phone or video meet and greet? You can tell me about what is troubling you and ask any questions that you have. In this meet and greet time, you can get a sense of who I am and then you can decide if I am the therapist for you. 

In counselling, we can look at the different parts of your personality and seek to strengthen your core self. Within therapy, we go on a quest to truly understand you, strengthen your connection to yourself and centre you. Having a stronger base can help with relationships as you can get off the merry-go-round of uncertainty. Is it me, or is it them, or if I try harder, this will work? The mental ping-pong that all humans experience can be eased in a therapeutic relationship, as when you speak, I will hear you. Being listened to means, it is not an internal game of ping-pong anymore. Together we can talk through ways you can move forward. If you feel stuck or overwhelmed, then therapy can help.

Please get in touch if you would like me to come on this part of your life's journey with you. If you want to know more about me, please go to my website by clicking the website button at the top of this page.

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.
