About me

My experiences in the counselling world has given me the privilege of working with people of various cultural backgrounds and ages. Assisting others in finding some balance in their lives is an honour, I am very grateful to be able to do such work.

If you are feeling that counselling may help you to deal with something which is difficult for you, please feel free to contact me for an initial call. I work in a  client-led, and open ended in terms of number of sessions you may wish to attend for.

I also offer Life-Coaching offered as singular, or various packages ranging from 3 months to 12 months.  If this is more appropriate for you than counselling then contact me and we can explore what we can create together.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me.

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.
