About me

I’m a Professionally qualified Relational Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist, registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. 

My counselling approach is relational, warm, non-judgemental and compassionate placing importance on the development of a strong therapeutic relationship this enables the client to feel safe and secure. I work collaboratively with the client offering different approaches, models and techniques which allows for great flexibility to meet individual client needs and preferences. My approach is informed by person-centred, psychodynamic, existential and gestalt therapy incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Additionally, I am a Trauma-Informed therapist placing importance on creating an environment that offers safety, trust, choice and empowerment.

  • Post Graduate Certificate Integrative Counselling Skills (accredited training provider for the BACP)

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.
