Society is quick to label people and say, “What’s wrong with you?” whereas, I believe we should be asking “What happened to you?”.
During these extraordinary times of coronavirus and self isolation many of us have experienced anxiety, loneliness and sadness. Some of this maybe about our present circumstances but some may also trigger past traumas.
We all need someone to list to our story. As a Counsellor my clients have included survivors of childhood/adult abuse, neglect, sexual assault, addictions, bereavement, and those recovering from traumatic-based experiences that have affected their current quality of life.
I work by helping people navigate their pain and find their own way to make sense of their losses. I recognise that, as each person is unique, so is their grieving process. I have a warm, accepting and non-judgemental approach and together, we look at the way you live and the attitudes, beliefs and myths that run you.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I am compassionate, respectful and genuine and always work with my client’s wellbeing at the heart of our relationship.
