About me

I am a qualified counsellor based in Bedfordshire and I work nationally via video platforms, such as Zoom. As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I am bound by BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. This means that I follow BACP principles and values, I have regular supervision and undertake CPD. In addition, I hold an up to date DBS Enhanced Certificate and professional insurance. I offer 60 minute one-to-one, open-ended sessions and I work with young people aged 18+ and adults.

Therapy is individual and it is ultimately tailored to your personal needs. My approach to counselling is Integrative with a humanistic ethos, which means I am able to apply a range of different techniques and approaches – including Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Existential – to suit your issues and preferred way of working. Confidentiality is extremely important when building an honest and trustworthy therapeutic relationship and it will be discussed during our initial consultation via telephone, where you will have an opportunity to ask questions and explore together the best way forward for you.

I have experience working within a therapeutic setting with a range of issues. These include anxiety, attachment disorder, behaviour problems, bereavement, bullying, carer support, depression, domestic violence, emotional abuse, family issues, low self-confidence, relationship problems, self-harm, separation and divorce, separation anxiety, sexuality, spirituality, stress, suicidal thoughts, trauma, work-related stress.

I am currently studying towards a Level 5 Certificate in Relational Counselling with Relate.

Member organisations

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.
