Hi, I'm a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and I work with adults and young people. I am trained in person-centred counselling and work holistically, understanding that we are all unique individuals and each person's needs will be different.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore any issues that may have brought you to counselling. Confidentiality and the relationship between the client and the therapist are extremely important to build trust and to allow you to feel comfortable sharing the most important aspects of your life.
I offer an introductory call, this is free of charge. This is for you to see if the way I work will suit you at this time and for me to identify how I can help you. You can also ask any questions that you may have about the counselling process to assist you in your decision about counselling sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified with a BA (Hons) in Counselling and an FdSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am trained in humanistic person-centred counselling. I work both privately and for an agency in schools and a doctor's surgery. I work with age groups 11+ and adults and have also worked with older adults within a charity.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and follow their code of ethics. I am DBS checked and fully insured.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
