About me

I have over 30 years of experience working in personal development in both Human Resource management and since 2014 as a psychotherapist, counsellor and coach.  I hold a Masters’ degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and certification as a Solution Focused Brief Therapy practitioner.

My counselling experience is with adolescents and adults and I have worked  extensively in multiple educational and charity settings along with private practice. I support the national charity Teenage Helpline as their clinical supervisor and the Designated Safeguarding lead.

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Chartered member of the Institute of Personnel and development and licensed to use a range of psychometric tools.

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.


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.
