Due to the new lockdown I will not be offering face-to-face sessions for the time being. Online and telephone appointments are, of course, still available.
Thank you for reading my profile. I work in an integrative manner, which means I draw from a number of approaches to find what works best for you, having been trained in person centred approach, CBT and attachment theory. I have experience providing counselling in the NHS and for a national charity, as well as in private practice. I also provide counselling services for a university and local council.
Counselling is a way for you to address issues or problems you might be experiencing, including depression, anxiety, lack of self-confidence, issues with relationships, etc. (Please see below for a more comprehensive list of areas I work with.)

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.

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).
