About me

My direction towards self-development has exposed me to deep & wonderful values. I now understand that feelings don’t need to be avoided or feared, they just are. I know people are all inherently creative & given the right environment of empathy, non-judgmental & unconditional positive regard everyone can find their way.

During my studies at Roehampton University, I was actively encouraged to engage in therapy so I could first experience what it means to be a client while exploring my own issues & promote emotional growth. This has been a deep, extensive journey into oneself which has supported me, not only in my work, but also in personal my life.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a fully qualified Therapist & registered member of BACP, I demonstrate an attitude of professional boundaries & conduct towards clients which have helped me carefully adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.

My professional journey started with a foundation certificate in counselling theory, before being awarded a Degree (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy accredited by UKCP.

As a commitment to continued professional development I embarked on my postgraduate studies through UPCA & have since completed further training in sexual, emotional/psychological abuse, suicidal ideation skills & PTSD.

I have also obtain my diploma in Clinical Supervision and is a Supervisor to trainees and professionals alike.

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.

Accredited register membership

If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
