I am a humanistic person centred counsellor, a registered member of BACP and understand the BACP professional conduct and ethical framework and applies such standards in my client work.
My areas of expertise include domestic abuse, trauma-based work, sexual abuse and bereavement. I facilitate 1:1, F2F, Telephone and Zoom sessions. I don’t charge for the first assessment meeting. I can work with clients from diverse backgrounds and over 18 years of age.
I will help you explore your challenges in a safe environment and in a non-judgemental approach. My approach is person-centred therapy and this space will be lead by you, I won't be leading you in any form or shape but will work with you in your pace along side you.
I have a warmth approach making our relationship more comfortable, and creating a space that feels safe and confidential, will go through brief paperwork on our first session in order to gain more knowledge about you, as well as allowing space for questions so that you gain insights of my work.
Would normally recommend weekly sessions- however these can be discussed when we first meet and allow flexibility of what works for you.

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.
