I am a fully qualified counsellor with experience of working with adults, children and adolescents ages 6+. I have been counselling for 5 years and specialise in children and young people ages 6 - 19.
I am trained in and work with an integrated approach to counselling which means I draw from various styles and tailor these to meet the clients individual needs. I can work creatively using play or art as a means of communicating feelings. I also use talking therapies.
I offer a non judgemental space to explore any issues affecting your mental health and wellbeing and functioning in daily life. I have experience of working with a multitude of issues such as self esteem and confidence, stress, anxiety, identity, domestic abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional/mental abuse, family breakdown, relationships, bereavement and many more.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
