With a background in nursing and midwifery and training in hypno-psychotherapy, counselling and coaching, I am able to help with a range of issues.
While there can be commonly occurring themes and patterns with the issues that bring people into therapy, as unique individuals we experience in unique ways, and therefore, I provide therapy which is tailored to the individual needs of each client. With this in mind I try always to provide a service which is professional, compassionate and effective and above all one in which you can feel both confident and safe.
People come into therapy with differing goals and expectations. I will work with you to formulate goals which are realistic and achievable. My approach is always collaborative, but I can work in more active directive style or in one that is more gently facilitative, depending on your needs and on what you are hoping to achieve from the process.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.
