About me

I believe the connection with your therapist is vital to your functioning future self. I aim to create a safe and welcoming place where you can feel confident to talk about what is on your mind and where we can work together to get you back to your best.

There is no doubt that there will be times when you may find it difficult to talk about yourself and your experiences. This is normal. As we work together, we will explore this, and as you grow, we may even have moments when we smile and laugh. Having fun can play an important part in our recovery, and our future growth.

This space will hopefully enable you to say the things you may not have said before, test new ideas out, and slowly enable you to reorganise your intrusive or uncomfortable thoughts. More importantly, we will aim to build you to be your own inner therapist, enabling you to control those thoughts and emotions that have impacted on your wellbeing.

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.
