About me

There are several contrasting approaches in the counselling/therapy field. I integrate powerful ideas from most of them. But what I value more than any theory or technique is being able to provide my clients with reliable, meaningful, supportive and ethically confidential relationship through honest dialogue.

I offer a non-judgemental, supportive environment to work through your thoughts and feelings and live a life that is more fulfilling to you. You will have a calm and confidential space and time to identify changes you would like to make and develop the skills you want to maintain these changes.

I understand how difficult you might find it to talk about your deepest concerns, but also that you could find it liberating. Counselling is about you- knowing where you are, how you got there and the choices you can make to change things. Choices that may have seemed impossible before.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a level 4 diploma in Counselling. At the moment I am studying MSc in CBT and Counselling.

I work for Cogwheel Trust in Cambridge and JHD Counselling Services as a counsellor, I volunteer for Cruse Bereavement.

I am a registered member of BACP and NCS.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
