About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP. I use a variety of practices in our sessions and I will work in a way that is comfortable and safe for you. Our work may involve looking at the past, whether that be relationships or experiences and how they impact you in the here and now, or it may be something more specific that you want to explore.

I also work with couples and am able to offer a space where you can explore your relationship and the issues that have brought you to counselling.

Our sessions will always be led by you but I will encourage you to challenge how you process and reflect.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with individuals.

I also work with  couples with issues ranging from infidelity, communication, work, money and much more.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
