I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor, qualified since 2002. I provide a safe, supportive non-judgemental space for people to explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences at their own pace. As an Integrative Counsellor, I use my knowledge of techniques and theories from different modalities including Humanistic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, CBT and I use my experience to tailor an individual approach to support each client.
Through counselling work, I can support people to recognise their own resources and to build on these, in order to find a way to move on.
My private counselling practice is open to everyone over 18 years, regardless of ability, culture, gender, race, religion or sexuality.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
