About me

Contacting a counsellor for the first time can sometimes be difficult, especially if you're unsure how it can help, once you've made that important call or email we can arrange some time together to identify any negative thoughts and explore any issues that may be affecting you.

My aim as a counsellor is to offer a safe, non-judgmental environment that will enable you to explore any problems you may have at present. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I work with different therapeutic approaches and adapt these to suit your individual needs

I offer both short and long term counselling, by working together you will be able to identify solutions and strategies to help make the changes in life you may need. I hold BACP Accreditation which recognises the achievement of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and helps clients to make an informed decision when choosing a therapist.

I am a member of the EMDR Academy UK and completed EMDR Europe accredited Training.   

I’ve been a therapist for over 10 years in a variety of settings and services for adults, children, and young people, including schools, bereavement services, Mental health charity, and private practice. I am a registered provider for Bupa, Aviva, AXA PPP health care, and Vitality Health.

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).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
