About me

Do you need help with anxiety? Have you been feeling depressed lately? Would you like to gain more confidence? Get in touch to arrange a free 20 minute introductory session where we can find out if I am the right fit for you.

Counselling is a sensitive exploration of a person's inner world and experiences. I believe that within a safe and caring therapeutic relationship people may develop self-awareness and self-acceptance, and ultimately find the power within themselves to move forward.

We are all unique, and therefore the true experts on ourselves. I take a non-directive and non-judgmental approach, following where my clients lead and avoiding analysis, techniques and advice. I believe it is important that clients are in control of the therapeutic process, and that the direction and depth we go to in sessions are informed and guided by them.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
