About me

Life is a rollercoaster, full of: challenges, hurdles, trials and tribulations. In the midst of it all we can become stuck. There may be one isolated experience, life event or feeling causing inner turmoil or a build up over time -  life can feel too much and over whelming.  

Since 2012 I have gained a vast range of experience working both in person and online with various issues and many different people.  I offer a safe environment for client's to process and understand at greater depth whatever is causing them conflict.  Working together we can develop coping strategies and move towards finding ways of achieving a more manageable life.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

My practice is located in both West Belfast and Belfast City Centre.  I currently offer afternoon appointments most days in person and some evening appointments.  Parking is available directly outside both locations however there are stairs when you come through the main door so unfortunately this would not make wheelchair access possible. Telephone or video counselling appointments would be an alternative option.
