About me

I offer a safe, and comfortable space for clients to work through their difficult issues and find their answers to their problems, enabling them to make sense of their world.

My orientation started as Person Centred and have developed a more integrative style of working to suit the needs of clients. I have gained valuable experience working with both young people, adults and clients with complex needs.

In addition, I have experience working with clients from different ethnic backgrounds and feel working with diversity is an important part of the work. I have worked with clients who have presented with various difficulties such as bereavement, addictions, relationship problems, drugs and alcohol, panic attack, depression, self-harm, and abuse and general life difficulties.

As well as being a fully qualified counsellor I am also qualified as a Clinical Supervisor and have experience in supervising qualified counsellors, students and trainee Social Worker.

I am a member of BACP and work within their framework and boundaries of confidentiality. I deliver a professional service supporting clients to move forward and reach a happier place in their lives.

Member organisations

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.
