About me

Finding inner peace and calm and being able to cope better with emotions, life and relationships can be made possible when you're able to be supported and work through your issues and concerns in an accepting and non-judgemental relationship. It's very important to talk to someone who will really listen to you and understand things from your perspective.

As an experienced BACP accredited therapist, I can help you to understand and assess the impact these issues are having in your life, mental and physical health and relationships. We can then explore and work through these issues in ways that encourage you to focus on and gain a deeper understanding and insight into the difficulties you face . This enables you to identify and choose which changes you'd want to make in your life.

Meeting together, we can help you to find ways forward to self-understanding, self-insights, growth, positive changes, choices and opportunities. This leads toward self-confidence, positive self-esteem and builds resilience. 

Going at a pace that works for you, we can explore what you hope to gain from counselling and work towards achieving this.

By sharing what's troubling you in a safe, supporting, unbiased and confidential relationship it can become possible to work towards the goal of therapy which Professor Stephen Joseph describes as, " Not just being about people surviving or getting through life but instead should aim to encourage people to find a way forward towards leading meaningful, purposeful and flourishing lives".

Let's work together to find a way forward that works for you. Please email to book your appointment.

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.

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.

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.
