About me

An initial telephone call or email prior to meeting, will allow you to ask any questions about therapy with me, whilst also gaining a sense of who I am. It will also provide you with the opportunity to share as much or as little as you like, of what it is that currently challenges you.

My personal and professional approach is warm and mindful, I regard each of us as a unique human being. I am able to work with your life experiences with sensitivity and as an integrative practitioner, I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches that will specifically focus on your individual needs. I will offer you a skilled and compassionate approach to explore core emotional responses, patterns of behaviour or relationship dynamics that currently present as challenging.

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.
