I am committed to helping my clients explore their concerns through the counselling process, by developing a safe environment where they feel able to talk about their thoughts and feelings, without fear of being judged. I am a genuine person who cares about their clients and their well-being, and will help you through your journey of self-discovery and empowerment to allow you to take control, leading to a better quality of life.
I will tailor your therapy to suit your needs, ensuring you are central to the process. The amount of sessions you require will be governed by your needs, and the pace at which you would like to work.
As a qualified counsellor and member of the BACP, I work within their ethical framework to ensure you as the client are provided with the best service possible.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.
