About me

Experienced Integrative Counsellor | Mindfulness Practitioner | Dedicated to Empowering You Through Personalised Support. Enhanced DBS .

I warmly welcome you to take that initial step towards healing and growth. I understand how daunting it can be to connect with a therapist for the first time. That's why I offer a complimentary initial assessment, providing us with the opportunity to explore whether we're the right fit to embark on this journey together.

Your well-being is paramount, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. I look forward to the possibility of working together to help you navigate life's challenges and discover paths to greater fulfilment.

Some more about me:

As an integrative counsellor with over 10 years in practice, I have a robust person-centered foundation, I am committed to guiding you towards positive pathways out of challenging circumstances. With a genuine passion for assisting people, I provide support tailored to your unique needs, ensuring a pace that suits your journey.

As a mindfulness practitioner, both personally and professionally, I integrate mindfulness techniques to promote holistic well-being and resilience in those I work with. 

I hope together we can illuminate paths of self-discovery and healing, leveraging my integrative approach and mindfulness expertise.

Throughout my career, I've provided crucial support in various settings, including, NHS Doctors' surgeries, and Schools, where I've counselled people on issues ranging from bereavement to identity. 

With a foundation built on empathy, intuition, and person-centered principles, I am committed to empowering you with resilience and authenticity, fostering safe and supportive environments.

I am committed to continued professional development adding many modalities to my original training.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
