About me

As an integrative counsellor I draw upon a variety of therapeutic modalities to offer a bespoke service based upon the needs of the client. We are all different but there are similarities specifically in the way the body and mind react to situations we experience

My person-centred approach to counselling reinforces the concept that each person knows themselves better than any one else and they function best if they are in control of their own choices and decisions and each one has the ability to reach their own true  potential. By offering a caring, non-judgemental, confidential environment where concerns, feelings and emotions can be explored, greater understanding and awareness of ones self can be gained and changes can be made

We are living in a very stressful environment and it can be therapeutic to understand what happens to our minds and bodies when under stress and recent neuroscience research is identifying this and what we can do to help to manage this stress and other conditions that may arise.

I work with a range of conditions and nothing is too big or too small to consider.

I am  a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework.

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.
