About me

I am an Integrative Therapist who uses a range of techniques and traditions to ensure my clients benefit from an approach designed to meet their individual needs.

My practice is integrative however I utilise Cognitive Behavioural Therapy extensively having studied the application of CBT at Masters Degree level.

Over my years as a Therapist, I have built up a wealth of effective coping strategies for a wide range of different issues that can help to bring about meaningful and long lasting change. 

​As a registered and accredited member of the BACP, I abide by its code of ethics which ensures high standards of ethical counselling practice. I also have an enhanced DBS check, professional indemnity insurance and extensive safeguarding training and experience. 

As my client you can expect to find a welcoming, confidential and non-judgmental space where you can explore any thoughts or feelings that have been causing you emotional pain, confusion or difficulty. 

​In my experience, some clients may just want a safe, therapeutic space to explore and make sense of their difficulties. For others, they may have specific goals such as learning to cope with anxiety for example and this is why an integrative approach can be very effective as it is tailored to the individual.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
