I have been qualified since 1996 and have worked in a range of clinical settings. I still love what I do and it is a constant privilege to be able to work with a wide range of people from all walks of life, many of whom are using therapy to figure out really important questions for themselves about who they really are and what they really want from their life.
I am also an experienced counselling educator and over a number of years I have had the privilege of training people from many different backgrounds to become counsellors.
Initially trained in the Humanistic approach I have applied the model to individual therapy, group situations and also small organisations.
Every person is unique and every person's life story and problems are unique and real and valid, no matter what.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
