About me

I am an integrative counsellor who works with both adults and children. I offer a safe, empathic, non-judgmental space in which to explore whatever is on your mind. You maybe feeling confused, lonely, anxious, panicky of what is happening or what the future holds or even overwhelmed or detached. These are all responses which start arising when we feel we have no control of our lives. As your counsellor I will help you make sense of these emotions and we will work together to understand, accept and overcome these feelings in a way that feels most comfortable and safe for you.

As an integrative Counsellor I tailor my approach to what suits you, and what you feel most comfortable with. I have a personal and professional interest in Mindfulness, and often incorporate these techniques in my sessions. Mindfulness can calm and help us become more present in the here and now, giving us an understanding of what really matters.

I will never judge you or tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. I believe that compassion, connection and trust lie at the heart of the therapeutic relationship. My role is to listen and strengthen trust in your own inner self. It is as we develop and build on compassion and awareness that we allow the space for real change to take place.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
