About me

In challenging times it may feel daunting to reach out for support. I will offer you a warm welcome and a friendly non-judgmental approach. Maybe you haven't had counselling before, or feel unsure how it may help you.

Counselling provides a safe, therapeutic and confidential space to explore any difficulties that you may be experiencing, with a view to enabling the changes that you seek in your life.

This is the first step and I am here to support you and work with you in seeking these changes.

I am a fully qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and registered member of the BACP. This means that my therapeutic approach is tailored to meet your specific needs, and may encompass a range of theories or creative methods in our work together. As a humanistic counsellor, I believe that we all have the capacity for growth, healing and change.

Change is possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a qualified nurse in both acute and community settings, prior to working in education for 15 years. Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have gained experience working creatively with students and young people, in addition to my work with adults on an individual basis. My career background offers a depth of experience in working and connecting with people with warmth and empathy.

I practise in a Person-centred way, which means; that you are at the very centre of the work, incorporating Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis approaches.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
