The well being of my client is paramount and I offer a warm and empathetic environment tailored to the specific needs of my client. My core is Person Centered counselling but I also offer an integrative and creative way of working if necessary.
Counselling gives you time to be heard and understood in a non-judgmental and safe space, exploring difficult feelings along the way. I am there to support you and respect your views. I will help you on your own journey into understanding your problems and therefore gaining more insight. This is at a pace you are comfortable with.
I have been qualified for 12 years and have a wealth of experience. I currently work for a local authority providing counselling to 11 to 19 year old in schools and sixth form. I have gained an extensive training base around working with this specific age group.
I am a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their ethical framework. I also have regular supervision.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
