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 and CPD regularly to support you in your sessions.

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
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.
