About me

As an integrative practitioner I offer a therapeutic relationship based service which draws on concepts that give clients insight and meaning to their issues, relationships, experiences and emotions.

Through working together we can access resources, resilience and strengths that can help with current difficulties and provide potential for you to be the best you can be.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a fully trained Counselling Practitioner, and graduate in psychology I have experience working in social care and the NHS I have experience of dealing with clients diagnosed with a wide variety conditions, such as; personality disorders, attachment disorders, ADHD and Autism. I have experience in working with clients presenting with depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, historical abuse, stress, self-esteem and low confidence.

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.
