About me

How I Work

I offer a confidential space and time to talk, explore feelings and deal with uncertainties or current problems in one’s life. Through our time we will explore together and bring an awareness of your inner world to help make sense out of your particular circumstances that are bringing you concern. I will offer you an empathic, warm, and non-judgmental space to listen to you. Through our reflections we can, together, help you find ways to work through your problems, and become more able and self-aware to cope in your future life.

My practice is professional and confidential. Respect and an openness to diversity and differences is an important part of my therapeutic process. I look forward to meeting people and listening to their life stories. Each of us brings a uniqueness to life.

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

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).
