About me

I am a qualified, integrative counsellor and I can help you bring light to issues that are keeping you from finding joy and meaning in your life. I can help you gain personal insight and awareness in a non-judgemental environment, allowing you to deal with personal relationships and issues differently.

With new insight and awareness, different outcomes than those that you may have previously experienced are possible.

I feel small changes can make big things happen!

Please feel free to contact me for an informal, no obligation chat to see how I can help and to make an appointment.

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to my BSc in Therapeutic Counselling, I have also done Cruse Bereavement Care training and have supported clients dealing with issues surrounding bereavement and loss.

Loss can come in many forms:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Divorce or separation
  • Empty nest sydrome
  • Retirement or redundancy
  • Family estrangement
  • Loss of a beloved pet

I have also worked with people who have experienced issues with domestic violence/abuse, low self esteem, drug/alcohol issues, depression and anxiety.

If there is something, or somebody holding you back from living the life you want, please call me to see how I can help and to make an appointment.

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.
