BSc (Hons) Humanistic Counselling Teenagers and Adults

About me

As a fully qualified and compassionate counsellor, I will provide you with a safe space to talk either at my private practice in Chertsey or by us meeting online using Zoom.

I offer a warm, empathic and non-judgemental counselling relationship where I will focus on helping you to move forward and be the best that you can be, in the situation that you are in.

I work using Humanistic counselling principles to help my clients address their concerns by taking a depth-focused approach towards therapy. My goal is to help you gain an insight into both past and present experiences in order to empower yourself to make informed choices that will lead to meaningful changes.

I am also working within the education and non-profit sectors and I feel that this has given me a broad client base and experience to draw upon.

Member organisations


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.
