Hello and a warm welcome
I believe our emotional well-being is the key to living a fulfilling life and that we are beyond our struggles so that when life throws up its inevitable challenges, it is how we deal with these, there is always a way forward. My underpinning belief is that everyone can change and that our present day issues have origins in the past and so unravelling the threads of our mis-learning about ourselves and the world can help us to live more comfortably and happily in the present.
I offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space, where you can understand what is causing your suffering, accompanying you whilst you explore what it is that is holding you back, asking you questions and acting as a reflective mirror to what is going on within you. I listen deeply to you with the aim of understanding who you are, what you are experiencing and working with you towards your goals. As a person-centred counsellor, I am guided by you, by your feelings, by your words, and I hold the session so you are able to let go: we can find a way that is suited to you and your needs and that feels true to who you are as an individual.
I receive regular Supervision and Therapy and attend further training courses regularly to support you in your sessions.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.
