About me

Firstly, let me thank you for looking at my page. Having been the client myself, l know how daunting and scary it can be to make the decision to enter into counselling and open up about the things that are causing you distress. That’s why my aim is to make you feel as comfortable and supported as possible, so that you can gain the most from your time with me.

l am an integrated counsellor which enables me to be able to offer every client something that will help them move forward. You will always be treated with warmth, empathy, honesty and positive regard. There is no limit on the number of sessions you can have with me, ensuring that you have the time to make the changes you want to make.

l sincerely believe that change is possible for anyone, as long as they want it.

Training, qualifications & experience

l gained my Degree in counselling in 2012, ever since then l have worked with clients in charities that help survivors of abuse, mental health hospitals, substance misuse services and in the private sector. I currently teach counselling to students and have my private practice.

Through this experience l have worked with a wide range of issues and have continuously built my skill set through experience and continued professional development. I value gaining new skills and therefore commit to doing at least 30 hours of further professional development every year.

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.

"You have helped me so much and I feel like I have my life back now. I was so worried that I wouldn't cope with talking about things, but you made it easier than I thought it would be. You're one in a million and I can't thank you enough." CS
