About me

I am a warm, empathic counsellor working with a person centred approach. I can offer you a safe, calm space for you to explore your issues and help empower you to move forward and facilitate change.

I work with individuals with a variety of issues such as anxiety low mood, trauma and addiction. I have lots of experience working with loss and bereavement.

I also have a special interest in veterans mental health, having served in the forces previously myself. My background also includes delivering counselling for a veterans mental health charity helping ex-service personnel with a variety of issues, including transitioning back into civilian life.

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.
