About me

Anxiety, relationship struggles, depression, work stress, bereavement and other losses are major emotional challenges. Sometimes these struggles feel overwhelming and it can be hard to think straight. Particularly if you feel unsure of yourself, it can be difficult to carry on alone. If you have the support of friends and family, you may worry about burdening them or perhaps you just want to talk to an independent professional counsellor.

My aim is to help you to better understand yourself and to make sense of your situation, so you can face the future with more certainty. Our meetings will be confidential and tailored to your needs. I will use my professional counselling skills and experience, to facilitate the changes you want to make.

My work is accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), so you can rest assured that I am guided by a national code of ethics and professional practice.

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.
