About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and registered member of BACP.  I work to BACP’s standards of Good Practice and their Code of Ethics.  My approach to working is both integrative and person centred.  This means I use all my skills to help you understand how you may feel about your difficulties, incorporating different psychological strategies and models to comprehend your experiences, then working to see how to overcome these barriers and become more aware of your own potential through self actualisation so you can achieve what you need to become the best that you can be.

In practice I use talk therapy and play therapy working with adults, older adults, young people and children offering 1:1 therapeutic sessions.  Face to face sessions will be available again when we reopen following the lockdown.  There is an option for online and remote support through the video conferencing app "Zoom," which I've been currently offering.

I would usually be able to offer long-term face-to-face work, online counselling, short-term face-to-face work, time-limited sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Masters in Working with Children, Young People and Families: A Psychoanalytic Approach
  • Bereavement Counselling Training
  • Children's Counselling Training

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
