Seeking therapy may feel like a step into the unknown.
I see it as a respite; a place to re-make a connection with yourself. It can be a safe space to bring difficult emotions and to find some understanding and perhaps discover a way to move forward.
I believe everyone has a right to be heard. You may be surprised at what you have to say; about what you want, what you've had enough of, and perhaps, what you never realised you knew all along.
My qualifications are as an integrated therapist so I can share different perspectives. These may be psychodynamic, to do with learned patterns; or person-centred, to do with your lived experience. Mostly though, we will be in the hands of the person most familiar with your journey: you.

Professional credentials and affiliations:
- Registered member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists
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
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.
