About me

Life has many challenges and sometimes we all need help to navigate our way through. There are reasons we get stuck in ways of being that hurt rather than heal. We keep repeating the same behaviours and we can’t see which direction to take because we can't see the bigger picture. We are all influenced by how we feel about ourselves, how we relate to others and our life experiences. But there are ways to better understand ourselves, see the bigger picture and live happier more fulfilling lives. If your thoughts are negative, you feel angry, anxious or overwhelmed, it might be time to take your first steps on the counselling journey.

It is ok not to be ok. We always try to make ourselves and others ‘feel better’ but in trying so hard to find a solution to emotional struggles we often avoid actually feeling our feelings. Life can be tough and learning to believe that it is ok not to be ok is an important part of our healing.

We are all unique individuals, seeing and experiencing things in our own way. Our therapy needs to reflect that. As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I use several different forms of therapy depending on what works for you. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where we can explore who you are and what has bought you to where you are now.

If you have any questions about me or my therapy please get in touch and let me know.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
