About me

Hello! If you feel stuck, lost or in crisis, counselling may help you find a way forward. My original training was in person-centred counselling, and this is still the foundation of my warm, supportive approach. Sessions are available online and by phone. I am also an Internal Family Systems practitioner (Level 2) and offer this online. There is more information on my website, so do have a look. You are welcome to contact me for an informal chat.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

I particularly enjoy working with people in the creative arts and industries, and those wishing to develop their creative side.  As well as being fun, creativity is good for the soul.
