About me

 As a fully qualified and experienced Gestalt counsellor, I am interested in how your current thinking and behaviour are affected by the environment in which you grew up and now live. in the midst of change and chaos, its vital to keep connected to the things that give you life, I can help with this.  I work either online or in person.

People tell me I am good at helping to clarify and manage fuzzy, confusing thoughts and feelings. Together we will use interesting and creative ways to explore whatever is bothering you at your own pace. I am experienced at working with people affected by addiction

Counselling helped me to rediscover my identity and direction after significant changes and losses. I love it when clients find purpose in their lives as they flourish and grow in new ways.

At our no obligation first appointment we will make a clear ongoing plan. A few sessions can make a big difference and I am also happy to work with you for longer.

I  am also a qualified  supervisor for both trainee and experienced counsellors.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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
