A professionally qualified counsellor who adheres to the BACP ethical framework.
Experienced working with adolescents and adults and committed to providing a professional standard of service which ensures my client’s welfare is of primary concern. I offer short term or long term therapy, working with a range of issues including, depression, anxiety, bereavement, sexual orientation, gender identity and abuse. I understand that working collaboratively with my clients is key in allowing them to understand what they would like to achieve from therapy and which modality of counselling may best be suited for them. Ensuring we can work ethically towards understanding the most beneficial approach of therapy and enabling us to make the most out of our time together.
Grounded in the relational aspect of therapy, I offer a down to earth and accepting approach whilst drawing upon various modalities of counselling. Which include Person-Centred, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). My fundamental aim is to provide a space where my clients can feel safe, understood and accepted whilst exploring ways to move through their distress or to understand and accept themselves more, leading to healing, change, growth and autonomy.
My personal interests as a therapist are in the power of awareness and acceptance. Particularly in consideration to the aspects of ourselves that we learn to deny, dislike and struggle to accept and the influence, this has on personal growth, self-esteem, psychological functioning and who we are in a relationship with our self and others. I believe that creating awareness, challenging and finding acceptance of these aspects of self allows people to move forward in ways which enables them to get the most out of themselves.

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.

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).
