About me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the Association of Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO) with more than 10 years of training and experience in Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy and Mindfulness Based Approaches

I have worked with clients with a broad range of difficulties including stress and anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties and self-esteem issues. 

The foundation of my approach is collaborative and compassionate and my aim is to provide you with a safe, therapeutic, non-judgemental relationship where I hope you will feel heard, understood and accepted so that you can heal through your pain and move forward with your life. 

I draw on a range of therapeutic models and methods so that therapy can be tailored to your individual needs and goals. These include humanistic and psychodynamic therapies, which can help to raise awareness and insight into the difficulties you are facing, alongside CBT which focuses on how thoughts and beliefs impact feelings and behaviours, and 'third wave' therapies which share the core aim of raising awareness of thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental way, and incorporating simple mindfulness and compassion evidence based practises which help to create emotional stability, and boost resilience and so that you can also learn coping strategies to help you live with more acceptance, freedom and ease.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take steps towards change.  Finding the right counsellor to support you is important.  I offer an initial 20-30 minute consultation free of charge to help you to decide if you would like to move forward. Please do get in touch.

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.
