About me

I have 18 years experience of the health and social care industry.  Therefore, I have a lot of experience working with people from varying walks of life and I have a deep understanding of work-related stress issues, particularly in association with COVID experiences.

I offer counselling services to individuals and couples.  I support clients who are experiencing grief, depression, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, stress, low mood and low motivation.

I offer an accepting and validating space for you to share your experiences and learn new ways of being.

I work creatively and differently with each client depending on their personality and needs.

I am passionate about people's ability to grow and change through life's many challenges and appreciate the privilege of being able to be alongside individuals during these times.

Many of us have had unmet childhood needs and these affect how we interact with the world in adulthood.  By gaining a deeper understanding of who we are and what has shaped us we can change our ways of communicating and feeling, thus deepening our relationship with ourselves and those around us.

Member organisations

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.
