About me

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.

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.
