I have been working as a counsellor for over 15 years now and in that time I have learned a lot from my clients about how to provide a useful space for reflection and personal development. At the heart of this is a collaborative listening process - we listen together to what it is that you need. That might mean help to unlock unhelpful patterns that are rooted in past experiences. Or it could be that the need is experienced more in the here and now and you want to focus on your present way of being and current difficulties. My job is to meet you exactly where you are. I will work hard to create an atmosphere that is warm, dependable and and real. Together we can work towards increasing your awareness and confidence and to help you make the shifts and changes you need to live more fully, freely and contentedly.

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.
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).
