About me

Things not going right in your life right now? Are you falling into the same destructive patterns in certain areas of your life? Are you feeling overwhelmed at finding a therapist? I’m here to keep the process as simple as possible: 

How to get started with therapy with me.

  • Step 1: Call or email me to set up a FREE 30-minute consultation.
  • Step 2: During the consultation, explain what is going on for you and how you think therapy may help.
  • Step 3: If you feel comfortable and happy to continue, we will book you in for your first session. 
  • Step 4: During your first session, we will talk in more detail about your issues. If you are happy to continue, we will book you in for your second session on a weekly/fortnightly basis. 

How I work:

It is essential to find a therapist that will be experienced and qualified to meet your needs. As a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist, I have a proven track record for helping people work through various issues. Clients I have worked with have made significant changes to their lives, overcome negative mindsets, and have achieved their future goals. My job is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to help you reach your true potential within caring, comfortable and confidential environment.

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.
