About me

I am a fully qualified accredited counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy with extensive experience counselling clients of all ages presenting with a wide range of difficulties.

In addition to my private practice, I have also worked as a counsellor for several years with a GP, with a women's charity and at a 6th form college that gave me specific experience and insight into the myriad of adolescent issues.

My integrative training enables me to offer a flexible approach, as a range of therapeutic models and tools will allow us to tailor therapy to your individual requirements. I firmly believe that it is the therapeutic relationship between us that will provide the safe supportive environment where you can explore, grow and fulfil your potential.

I offer both short and long term therapy to adults and older teenagers.

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.

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.
