About me

When we are in need of help, sometimes we can get the support we require from our friends and family. There are also times though where perhaps more specific help is needed,  including issues like anxiety, relationships, depression or low self esteem. I provide a quiet space to explore, reflect and understand what is happening for you.  Here we can work together to improve your wellbeing and make life more comfortable for you. I also provide a private and confidential space for you to explore aspects of your concerns and issues.

I have trained in Integrative Humanistic Approach, using Person Centred Approach central to my work, also using Gestalt and Transactional Analysis.  I am also a qualified CBT Therapist.  I have worked privately and in volunteer roles throughout my training and subsequently since becoming fully qualified. I have worked with Adults and Young People (12 - 25) and also in a middle school working with 9 - 13 years olds.

I am fully insured and I am able to offer long term support and targeted short term support tailored to the individuals needs. With regular reviews to ensure we are working collaboratively and to your needs.

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.

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).
