About me

As an accredited Person Centred counsellor, I believe that within each of us there are great resources and potential.

I see my role as providing a non-judgemental, authentic and empathic relationship so that clients can safely explore issues of concern. The hope is that clients can begin to see things more clearly and to draw upon their own inner strengths to face life's challenges.

The quality of the relationship between therapist and client is widely regarded as the most important factor in facilitating effective therapy. I encourage an authentic, collaborative relationship and will invite clients to regularly review the work to ensure they are getting what they want from the therapeutic relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a first class degree (BA Hons) in Person Centred counselling from Metanoia Institute. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have worked with clients in a number of different counselling agencies, on a range of issues, in particular relationship issues, anxiety, depression, abuse (childhood abuse, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, bullying), trauma, bereavement and loss, low self-esteem and self-worth, family issues and parenting. In addition to my private practice, I currently work as a counsellor for students at a London university. I have previously worked for a domestic violence charity. 

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
