About me

Hi, thank you for looking at my profile. Life can’t be always plain sailing and there will be times when things can become overwhelming. Are you struggling at the moment? Sometimes it can be difficult to find a way out when we are feeling really down, and it’s not always easy talking about your innermost feelings with friends or family.

If you are looking for a counsellor, it is the first step to say that you may need a helping hand to make changes in your life, to be heard and to heal. I am a predominantly a person-centred counsellor and I believe that you have all the tools and strengths within yourself, to be the best version of you; but for whatever reason, you are finding things difficult. Using reflection, genuine empathy, and a non-judgemental space we can work together to help you express and explore your feelings in a safe environment.

Please contact me for a chat to discuss your needs further.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed the CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I have several years of experience volunteering with mental health charities as well as running my own private practice. 

Member organisations

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
