About me

I take a humanistic and Person Centered approach to counselling, meaning that the sessions are client-led. It is your space, and you bring to it whatever you choose.  I offer a confidential, safe place where you are heard. I give you time to explore problem areas in your life within a non-judgemental, open and trusting relationship. This can help you to find resolutions and develop coping strategies.

I believe that we all hold within us the answer to our own problems and that the therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor is a unique and powerful one, which can lead to the resolution of issues in a lasting and effective way. The personal strength which comes from finding your own solution can remain with you and be drawn upon in the future.  My counselling sessions take place in strict confidence, and I remain impartial and non-judgemental. I aim to develop a relationship of mutual trust, empathy and challenge. The therapy room is a safe space in which you are able to share the load of whatever it is that is preventing you from feeling in control of your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and have a Professional Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work both privately and for mental health charities.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
