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.

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 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 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).
