About me

I am a BACP registered person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist currently offering sessions online, by telephone and outdoors.
You might be hoping to understand more about your self, relationships or an issue affecting how you live your life. I will offer you empathy without judgement.

I understand the importance of being heard. Practising from a deep-rooted person-centred ethos, and adhering to the BACP's ethical framework, I hope to accompany you as you try to make sense of whatever may be preventing you from living the life that you’d like to.

You can contact me by phone, text or email to request additional information, and we can decide if we’d like to work together. After that, you can attend sessions weekly, fortnightly, or as suits your need. Please note that I can currently offer daytime sessions only.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
