About me

I believe our human connections and relationships are just as important as the nature that surrounds us and the air we breathe. 

For various reasons, there are times in our life where it can be helpful to talk with someone who is out with our usual circle of family and friends.

I offer a safe, friendly, confidential space where I will be alongside you as we explore the aspects of your life you wish to share. These can be your thoughts, feelings, and or behaviours. 

I am empathic, friendly and approachable. I will listen to you, go at your pace and be curious throughout as you share your thoughts, feelings and behaviours both from the past and present.

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.
