Counsellor MBACP

About me

Do you feel you may be becoming dissatisfied by your choices and trying to find your own meaning or reality? It can sometimes feel overpowering and leave us with feelings of uncertainty. 

This may lead to feelings of anxiety or a form of stress where we can't find a connection to our lives, other people and to our own choices in the world we live in. 

I am a qualified person centred counsellor who will give you a confidential ,non judgemental space to talk through what is important to you and how you experience your own reality. We can then try and make sense of your own thoughts and connections.

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.
