About me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, a form of counselling that provides unconditional support and understanding in a compassionate and none-judgemental way. I work in a professional, empathic, confidential way, creating a trusting environment where we can work together to build a therapeutic relationship that allows you to feel confident and safe in sharing your thoughts and feelings whilst I provide you with consistent feedback, understanding and respect for your autonomy.

Counselling can offer you a safe space where you can look at the root cause of the problem, gain clarity and develop an understanding of how to move forward. Counselling can also help you to regain control of your life or learn to accept the things you cant control, thereby providing an opportunity for change to live in the way that you so desire, or to find happiness and balance along the way within your current situation.

Member organisations


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.
