About me

I'm a qualified and BACP registered Counsellor currently working with adults and children 12+.  I offer both long and short term therapy and provide these face to face in my private practice or remotely, either by Zoom or on the phone.  I work with individuals from any race, culture, religion or sexual orientation.

I initially qualified as a Humanistic Therapist (Person Centred) and this means that I work with you at your pace in a non-judgemental and supportive way, focussing on the issues that you choose to bring. I have also undertaken further specialised training in a number of areas and will bring these principles to bear within sessions when appropriate. 

​As no two people are the same I believe that therapy needs to be tailored to your unique requirements. I will work collaboratively with you in a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential environment to help you explore whatever you wish to talk about.  I listen to you to understand your perspective and work with you to create an environment where you can better understand yourself and your issues.  I aim to help you  work through your issues and support you in finding a way forward that is right for you.

In addition to my private practice, I work part time as both a School Counsellor and as a Child Advocate (providing a voice for children who are under a child protection plan). I also provide regular voluntary counselling at a local charity.

Member organisations

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.
