About me

I am a trauma-informed, fully qualified, Therapist. Registered with the British Association for counselling and psychotherapy (BACP). My practice involves assisting individuals in addressing a diverse array of challenges and experiences that are intertwined with the life narratives of many individuals. These include issues such as depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, post-traumatic stress, addiction, bereavement, loss, family issues, autism, and ADHD. 

I work collaboratively with each individual client toward their desired goals to gain clarity, self-awareness, self-understanding, and self-confidence. All support a healthier relationship with self, which in turn supports healthier interpersonal relationships. I support clients to develop skills and access resources within themselves, promoting strategies and interventions for meeting both short- and long-term goals.

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.
