Hello, I am a person-centred counsellor, qualified in 2007. I am also a yoga and reiki teacher which enriches my approach by adding awarenss of the implicit experience of the body and mind relationship.
I have worked with issues of drugs and alcohol, depression, family breakdowns, gender, sexuality, childhood sexual abuse and rape. As well as women's health, particularly new mother's mental health and healing. I have also worked in outreach with H.I.V, sexual health, homelessness and mental health within the community.
My ethos as a counsellor is that the individual (s) are central to the session, the lived experience of the person(s) engaging in counselling is valued, held and respected.
I work in a spiritual way, helping you to explore any issues in multiple ways and approaches, placing you at the centre.

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.
