About me

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I have varied qualifications and extensive experience working with many different issues that may prevent people moving forward with their lives and realising their potential..

I provide a confidential, ethical, non-judgmental environment for clients to build a relationship based on trust which will enable them to become open to exploring their difficulties and work through them. Throughout my career I have been able to assist clients to identify and challenge negative thoughts, behavioural patterns and beliefs along with gaining self-awareness, self-belief and confidence. I am privileged to experience and witness a clients journey as they progress and make positive changes in their lives.

My integrative training means I can draw upon various theories of practice that works holistically to bring awareness of how making a positive change in one area of your life can improve many other areas too. I believe that by gaining self-awareness and understanding that we have the empowerment to change and find tools to maintain those changes. Before seeking help you may not have been aware of choices available to you or how to start making changes. My hope is that with my support you will.

Areas of my work include:

  • Addiction
  • Bereavement
  • Anxiety
  • Codependency
  • Family dynamics
  • Relationships
  • Anger
  • Trauma
  • Domestic abuse
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders
  • Group therapy.

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.
