About me

I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as listed on the BACP Professional Standards Authority accredited register. I am an integrative humanistic counsellor, and my approach is informed by person centered therapy and transactional analysis.

My clinical experience includes working with clients therapeutically in private practice and NHS primary care settings, where I have experience of supporting clients who are struggling with difficulties including depression, anxiety, identity, work stress, self-esteem, trauma, bereavement/loss, life changes and relationship difficulties.

The core conditions of person centered counselling are empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. I use these to offer a space where difficulties can be explored and heard without judgement, and with compassion and understanding for each individual’s life experiences.

Training, qualifications & experience

I undertook my training at Northern Guild Psychotherapy and Counselling in Newcastle upon Tyne where I completed a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Level 6 - Undergraduate Degree equivalent qualification). I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology (Distinction) from the University of East London.

I have experience supporting clients in an NHS primary care (GP) setting, as well as in private practice offering individual therapy sessions to adults aged 18 and above.

I have also worked as a lawyer in a public institution and in private practice in the City of London. I hold Postgraduate Law qualifications as well as a BA (Hons) Degree in Modern Foreign Languages (French, Spanish & Catalan).

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.
