About me

If you’re feeling stressed, lonely or overwhelmed, I can help! I’m a warm, empathetic and open-minded counsellor, and I provide a safe, confidential space where you will be heard, accepted and supported. I will listen to you and discuss your hopes, goals, dreams as well as things you struggle with. I will support you in discovering more about your authentic self and work with you on creating the life you desire.

We’ll start by creating a safe space for you to explore challenges that you are facing. I will help you to identify and break through underlying barriers, triggers and blocks and explore how these might be affecting your life. You will gain more awareness of your own needs, things you would like to work on and embrace your past, present and future.

By reaching out, you are showing strength and taking the first step towards healing. Please drop me a line ... I am here for you!

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
