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. These include: Person Centred; Psychodynamic; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy; Yoga therapy and Neuro science; and coaching.  We are all individual and our experiences are wide and varied, but there are similarities specifically in the way the body and mind react to situations we experience and new scientific findings and research can help us to find strategies to help manage stressful situations.

My person-centred approach to counselling reinforces the concept that each individual 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.

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in Education for over 30 years and set up my private practice after I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic counsellor in July 2011. I then qualified as a yoga therapist in 2014 and incorporate some of this learning into my therapeutic work, where relevant.

Member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
