About me

I am a qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP. I support clients who are dealing with issues such as anxiety, low mood, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, addiction and bereavement.

We all experience difficult times in life and can sometimes feel stuck, overwhelmed or lost. It might be that you’re coming to terms with a challenging event, or feel unsure of the best way forward for you. As a person-centred counsellor, my purpose is to create a safe, supportive space where you have the freedom to focus on and explore your thoughts and feelings, and reflect on what you want from life.

Together, taking things at your pace, we’ll aim to help you find a way towards greater self-awareness and resilience, and a life that feels more meaningful and purposeful to you.

To allow you to get a better understanding of counselling and how we might work together, I offer a first session at a reduced rate of £25. We can discuss what brings you to counselling and what you’d like to get out of our sessions, and you can get a better sense of whether my style and approach suit you.

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.
