About me

Hi, I have been counselling for over 18 years providing long and short term therapy. I believe that the counselling relationship is very important and I like to provide my clients with a positive and healing experience which will enable them to become the best they can be.

I specialise in treating trauma and am fully trained in EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitisation and Reprocessing).

Most of my work is now carried out online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am Integratively trained which means that I use different models of therapy within my work to suit the need of the individual client.

I am fully EMDR trained. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is a well recognised and safe way to treat trauma and enable people to function normally again following traumatic events.

I am also a clinical supervisor.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership
