About me

Maybe you are feeling sad, hurt, confused or lost? I understand there can be a real feeling of apprehension in reaching out for help. I also understand the power and enrichment that can come from taking that tentative step. I promise to offer a warm, safe environment for you to explore your emotions. I am committed to supporting you to make connections and gain a deeper understanding of your experiences past and present. Your voice, your truth, your story will be heard without judgment. I will endeavour to help you to recognise the strength you have inside to heal yourself.

I work with individuals and couples.

I also work as a supervisor

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
