I am a qualified BACP registered integrative counsellor, combining a person-centred and psychodynamic approach to work with clients with a wide range of presenting issues.
If you are experiencing anything that leaves you feeling overwhelmed or stuck, we can work to find way forward for you. Counselling provides a regular safe space for you to talk about difficult feelings without being judged. Usually working on an open-ended basis, I aim to provide a safe and accepting environment where you can look to find a deeper understanding of yourself, explore areas where you may feel stuck, uncover repeating patterns in relationships, or a space to safely confront and overcome negative behaviours, thoughts and feelings.
I have over 10 years’ experience of working with those who have been impacted by stress, anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, loss and bereavement. I have worked extensively with those whose lives have been impacted by their own or a family members substance use. Together we can create a safe space for you to explore any of these issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma level 4 Counselling Studies
Diploma level 4 Health & Social Care
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).
