About me

I am aware that looking for and starting counselling can be challenging, often at a time when you may be feeling overwhelmed, making it hard to reach out. My aim is to offer a safe and supportive environment, providing you with a non-judgemental space so you can feel truly heard and understood. Within this safe space you will be able to explore past or present concerns that may be causing conflict within yourself and impacting on your psychological well being.

Counselling can give you the emotional support to explore your life events and feelings. This support will allow you to gain understanding, reaching your own decisions about how you may want to move forward with your life and the best way for you to be able to do this. 

I work with adults, couples and adolescents.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained as an integrative relational counsellor, believing that the relationship developed during counselling is key to the therapy process. I believe that each person's life experiences have contributed to their individuality and am able to integrate different approaches to best suit and work with each client to achieve their goals.

I have had experience working with a wide range of presenting issues including abuse, anxiety, change, depression, relationship issues and trauma amongst others. If your concern has not been mentioned here please get in touch and we can discuss whether I am likely to be the right counsellor for you. 

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
