About me

Would you like to have a better insight of the feelings and emotions you're experiencing, gain a better understanding of Your relationship with others? And how to make changes to your life and take control of your own destiny, explore and understand the issues you are experiencing, I strongly believe with counselling You will make sense of your issues past or present, life decisions and changes you feel, need or would like to make.

This Is your journey and I can help and support you with anxiety, family and relationship issues, depression, bereavement, panic and eating disorders and many many more.

I am an accredited integrative counsellor, I worked in a voluntary capacity for a respected local organisation for 2 years as a person-centred therapist, gaining experience of counselling adults, covering a wide range of issues.

I was trained as an integrative counsellor; this enables me to take elements from specific therapies, so I’m able to tailor your sessions to suit you as a unique individual, thus making you feel at ease and in good hands.

I believe for counselling to be effective, we need a good foundational relationship between client and therapist. I will provide a safe, confidential and judgment free space to achieve a good working relationship, thus making you feel comfortable and safe, so that I can support you on your journey.

I offer short or long term counselling and have appointments to suit you, options of daytime, evenings or weekends. Please do not hesitate to contact me to ask any questions or to arrange an appointment.

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.
