About me

I work with a unique combination of eastern and western approaches. I provide a safe, supportive environment in which you can explore and find your own way and insights into your life.

I place equal emphasis on mind and body and explore lifestyle options with a view to reaching a happy and healthy life. I treat everyone as an individual who needs a unique blend of approaches to help them. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship helps people to find their own resources and inner strengths.

My therapeutic training involves a combination of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, Analytic, and Gestalt therapy. My key emphasis is on empathy, genuineness, warmth, and acceptance.

  • Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
  • Counselling Certificate in Working with Children and Families

  • Masters Degree in Mass Communication

I have 10 years' experience in counselling and psychotherapy, originally in an institutional setting, and now exclusively in private practice.

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.
