About me

You may already know what you want from therapy or you may feel that something is not quite right but you’re not sure what.   Perhaps you’re looking for help to make sense of your current feelings. Maybe you are feeling painful emotions or want to improve relationships or get a better understanding of yourself. Perhaps you're feeling unsettled due to bereavement, separation or health issues. Maybe you're feeling anxiety or stress. Well done for admitting that things aren't quite right and for starting your journey to bring back control. Counselling can provide a confidential space to bring clarity and order to your thoughts.

I am here to listen and support you, helping you to find your own solutions to move forward or reach your goal. I can offer you a confidential space to voice your thoughts and, together, we can look for ways to process and understand them. Counselling is a conversation where we can explore what’s going on for you now and bring order to your thoughts. Together, we can tailor therapy that suits your needs. I can provide long or short-term therapy and I use a range of techniques to help you move forward or reach your goal.

I am a British born Chinese integrative counsellor - that simply means we work together to look at how you’re currently feeling and, sometimes look at the past to bring understanding to the present. Get in touch with me and we can start a conversation on your path to change. Change is amazing.

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.

Accredited register membership
