*COVID -19* During the current pandemic I believe that it is important that we nurture and care for our mental well-being now more than ever - I am currently working via video call and telephone, and can book sessions with little notice.
I believe that we are all deserving of an environment in life in which we do not feel judged, and we feel liberated in being and exploring who we are. Life's events and experiences impact upon us and change us in many ways, and it can be confusing and difficult to know how to navigate our way through these times when we feel stuck, misunderstood or at a loss as to how to move forward.
As a qualified therapist my aim is to navigate through the difficulties alongside you, at your own pace and with focus on what your priorities are. Working integratively means that I recognise and respect each person for their individuality. No person or situation is the same, and I believe that a bespoke approach using the different models of therapy have the most successful outcome.
I am a warm, approachable and congruent person. The authenticity and trust within a therapeutic relationship is vital in counselling, I am aware that every person moves at different speeds. I offer patience and unconditional positive regard while this relationship is being built.
During my time within counselling, I have worked with a diverse range of clients with low, medium and complex presenting issues.

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).
