About me

I work with individuals on either a short-term or long-term basis. I only offer sessions via Zoom. 

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where we can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences in order to help you move forward.  I integrate a range of theories with a practical, change-oriented approach. The process may, but not always, involve looking at your past, how this impacts on you in the present and to then examine ways of implementing change to help you feel better about yourself.  My approach is pro-active with a focus on clarity, change and forward movement.

Many people I work with often feel overwhelmed by what they are experiencing or they have reached a point where they feel 'stuck' and cannot see a way forward.  By working together, we can make sense of what’s going on for you and explore new ways of being to help you live a more productive, fulfilling life.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk) and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. I am fully insured and, in line with best practice, my work is regularly supervised.

Appointments are available during the daytime or evenings. Timetabling of sessions is flexible to fit in with your schedule.

I have a successful track record in helping people overcome their difficulties and offer a free  initial consultation.  This will involve an exploration of your issue(s) and will also provide you with a sense of how it might be for us to work together.

I have worked with a number of organisations both pre and post qualifying, and I also work as a clinical supervisor, providing individual and group supervision.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKRCP

United Kingdom Register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists (UKRCP) (UKRCP)

The UKRCP is a voluntary register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists held by BACP. A condition of registration is accreditation with either BACP, COSCA, UKAHPP or FDAP.

Registered practitioners are entitled to be known as a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor / Psychotherapist.

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.
