About me

I am a BACP accredited, level 7 integrative psychotherapist offering sessions to children and adults. I offer 1-2-1 sessions to adults, children and young people using creative therapy and talking therapies.

I have been a therapist for 10 years specialising in spectrum disorders, trauma and working therapeutically with looked after children. I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment for clients of all ages to explore their issues in depth. I also offer telephone counselling and online counselling.

Youth counselling and adult counselling available.

If you think your child may need help I offer therapy to children from age 4 and above. Counselling children and young people has an enormous impact in terms of the young person’s personal, social and emotional development. For ages 4-12 I offer creative therapies, this involves arts, crafts and play therapy. For ages 12+ I offer creative and a range of talking therapies.

Member organisations

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.
