About me

I work with clients to help them through difficult periods in their lives e.g.:

  • Dealing with loss
  • Coping with major life changes
  • Stress at work or home
  • Relationship issues
  • Coping with ill-health

Or to address on-going emotional/psychological issues e.g.:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Anger
  • Self-esteem/confidence

I use an integrative approach, combining elements of person-centred and psychodynamic therapies and CBT. This means I can adapt the way I work to suit your individual needs and time-frame. I can work with individuals or couples/family groups.

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.
