About me

Do you feel worried or anxious Do you need to talk? Sometimes life can feel like an uphill struggle and we are not sure where to turn. 

I believe I can help you gain a  deeper understanding of yourself and the struggles you are experiencing. It can feel easier to have someone to talk with, within a supportive environment, at a convenient time place and with the most appropriate form of communication, rather than feeling alone and isolated with your problems

I  am an  Accredited registered practitioner and have worked as a counsellor /psychotherapist and over the last 15years, I have worked closely with various organisations such as Secondary Schools, Charitable Trusts, Employment Assistance Programmes,  Emergency services workers, and  Her Majesty's Prison and Probation. I have gained extensive experience working remotely via zoom or telephone with individuals and business professionals across the UK and Europe

My past work experience has involved working with clients who feel anxious and stressed  This has been heightened thought-out the Covid 19 Pandemic.

Some of the issues below that are brought, to therapy that I can support you with, and if you feel unsure, please consider reaching out to me to ask for help as the first step towards moving forward.  

TAKE THE FIRST STEP IN FAITH>YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEE THE WHOLE STAIRCASE JUST TAKE THE FIRST STEP.

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.
