I view all of my clients as 'people first' with a unique experience and psychological world. I pay particular attention to issues arising from difference in its many forms, including race, age, disability, religion or sexuality all of which I believe, shape who we are and how we view and experience the world around us.
I offer a sensitive and confidential service. My training is Integrative and Person Centred in approach which means that I understand a number of different theories and research. In turn, this enables me to adopt a more flexible approach to my work. Ultimately, you are unique and we'll work together to agree what would best meet your presenting needs. So there's no requirement for you to fit into a 'theoretical box'.

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.
