I am a professionally qualified, experienced counsellor who works with both adults and young people. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and an associate member of Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As well as treating adults on a one-to-one basis, I have over 7 years experience of counselling young people privately and as an in-house counsellor within primary and secondary schools.
I am committed to a psychodynamic approach to treatment and my clinical work is consistent with the highest ethical standards required by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Counselling sessions can either be on a short or long term basis depending on your circumstances (minimum of 6 sessions advised).
Sessions take place weekly (at the same time) and last for 50 minutes.
Sessions with young people can take place either within school or from a private consulting room.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
