About me

“It is when we start working together that the real healing takes place.” David Hume

I have Gestalt training which means I believe that everyone has the potential to find their own answers to their problems. Painful and difficult life events can block our self-belief which can obscure our ability to find solutions or sometimes we just feel ‘stuck’. I will work alongside you, helping you to raise your self-awareness and to see your situation more clearly. As Fritz Perls said “Awareness in itself is healing” as through heightened self-awareness we find that we have the choice to try something new. 

I see our work as a collaboration together. I offer a confidential space, without judgement, where I will use my intuition and creativity to gently challenge and support you.

Member organisations

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.
