As a psychotherapist, I aim to create a non-judgemental, empathic, and authentic relationship with my client, which enables them to use it for their personal growth.
I draw on both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theories to inform my practice, and through building a trusting and understanding relationship, help clients to access what is on the edge of their understanding about themselves and facilitate the desired change and growth.
I offer individual psychotherapy sessions to adults. I work with clients experiencing a range of emotions, feelings, difficulties and concerns.
I am a registered member of the BACP, and I adhere to the BACP’s (2018) Ethical Framework. I have regular clinical supervision to maintain an excellent practice. I have Indemnity Insurance and I hold an enhanced Children and Vulnerable Adults DBS certificate. I work in accordance with the data protection legislation and relevant regulations (GDPR 2018) and am registered with the Information Commissioner‘s Office (ICO). I will discuss the details of confidentiality and how I manage any personal data before we commence any work together.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
