About me

I am a qualified accredited integrative counsellor and supervisor.

I have a private counselling and supervision practice in Herne Bay.   I  am a supervisor of Bereavement Volunteers and counsellors in training at a Bereavement Charity.  I also work for an agency as a High Intensity Counsellor working remotely with NHS clients.

Prior to this, I set up a Counselling Service in London.  I managed the service with two other counselling colleagues.  During my time there I supervised groups of counsellors who volunteered for the service. I also worked for the London Borough of Merton for over fifteen years in adult social care.

I am a trained bereavement counsellor.  I used to work at a bereavement counselling agency in London and for a counselling agency providing counselling in schools in London.  I have worked for an NHS trust as an Integrative Counsellor offering short-term high intensity counselling.

I have worked with adults, couples, and groups, offering short and long-term therapy for a variety of different issues.

I have experience working with children and adults with learning and physical disabilities, neurodiversity, and mental health issues. I integrate Person Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT, Gestalt and Clarkson's therapeutic model within my individual therapeutic approach. I use creative techniques when this is appropriate, such as play therapy and drawing with children and particularly in the bereavement work with clients of all ages.  I feel that my adaptable approach can meet the best needs of my clients.

I am a genuine, non-judgemental, empathic counsellor. It is important to develop a good therapeutic relationship with my clients to enable them to work through the issues they bring to counselling. I provide a safe and supportive environment where my clients can work through their issues with me and make positive changes in their lives.

I adhere to the BACP ethical guidelines. I am a registered BACP member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
