About me

Sometimes we all need to talk but struggle to find the right person to turn to. Those closest to us may not always be able to offer what we need. You may be experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic, anger, bereavement, shame or another emotional distress, perhaps you have experienced abuse or harm?

This is where counselling may be helpful. Someone to listen to you without offering judgement or advice, someone who believes you know best what you need and who can provide you with a safe, confidential place to explore those needs.

I offer counselling to individuals and couples in Buckinghamshire and Central London and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the U.K. Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by BACP's Ethical Framework and the UKCP's Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.

My practice is based in Beaconsfield HP9, and I also have offices in the West End and the City. All locations have wheelchair access.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
