We can often experience difficulties in our lives and tend to ignore how we feel and the impact that it may have on our well being. I work collaboratively with my clients aiming to create a friendly, professional, supportive safe space to explore what causes them to feel the way they do, gaining insight in to what their needs and wants are, what choices they have in enabling them to reach their full potential, autonomy and often facilitating change within their lives.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified humanistic counsellor (B.A hons) and I am accredited by the BACP.
I am an experienced mental health counsellor working with clients who are experiencing feelings of moderate to low mood and anxiety. I have been working for the NHS's improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) sector for nearly 4 years.
I am an experienced bereavement counsellor working with clients who are bereaved, in anticipatory grief and palliative care patients.
In my previous positions I was the older persons and LGBTQ+ champion working with clients from their communities and facilitating workshops on inclusion and diversity.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
