About me

I am a fully qualified and highly experienced BACP Accredited Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Level 7), providing a confidential and professional counselling service. I also offer professional Supervision to counsellors, mental health professionals and third sector organisations.

I am a Relational Integrative Counsellor which means I am able to combine theory and techniques from a variety of major theoretical approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred and Psychodynamic and integrate them into a single approach. This has the advantage of being incredibly flexible and creative in my practice and tailor my work to your specific needs or goals. 

My Counselling practice aims to give you the opportunity to explore your problems, distresses, or any difficult situations that you are experiencing in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe, and supportive environment. My aim is to make your counselling experience a positive one and is at a pace that best suits your needs. 

My Practice

As a Counsellor I feel privileged to be part of your journey and work to facilitate you through your difficulties so that they become more manageable. Working collaboratively together we can find creative and positive ways forward by looking at your problems from different perspectives to find meaning in your life, and/or help you acquire new skills/techniques to assist you in overcoming the issues you are facing. Problems sometimes go on for a long time and you cannot see a way out of them, or they can make you feel out of control, but change is possible.

My aim is to develop an open and genuine therapeutic relationship with you to provide guidance and support for your needs. We will review regularly how you are finding our work together and how you are feeling between sessions.

I work privately within a clinic setting offering face to face, online and telephone sessions. Sessions are 50 minutes in duration at a fee of £45.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).
