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 50 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 Certificate in Relational Counselling with Relate.

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.
