As a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I work with individuals who feel they will benefit from exploring any difficulties they’re experiencing. I’m happy to work with any issues you may have, in a safe and supportive space, to help find some resolution.
The way I approach counselling allows me to offer you vital support and understanding during difficult and painful periods of your life. The journey we take together will help with your continued personal development, rebuilding and finding a path through life that meets your own values and gives you a sense of independence and autonomy.
If you feel you would like to make changes to your life, I offer the space to help you achieve that.
I will always be led by you and what you want to achieve from our time together. I will work hard to understand your world and how it affects you – and will always do this in a non-judgemental way. You can be sure that I will be genuine and open in our relationship.
I’m a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework, which contains the standards and principles for therapeutic practice. My qualification is an FdSc in Person-Centred Counselling (Brighton University).

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
