About me

I provide 1-1 therapy via FaceTime to provide an accessible service for my clients. 

I am a holistic, humanistic counsellor/psychotherapist working within a person centred framework.

I can use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to help a client become aware of their negative behaviour so that we can explore further in our sessions.

I offer working in a pure CBT approach if required.

At present I am training in Reality Theory which will enhance my current skills further to support my clients to make better choices for themselves in the here and now.

I offer short-term and long-term therapy.

I work with young adults (16-25), and older adults (25+).

I facilitate couple mediation to help couples decide whether they would like to engage in further couple counselling.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
