Who am I?
I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and adhere to the BACP code of ethics. I offer a professional and confidential counselling service dealing with a wide range of problems. As an integrative counsellor I work with different therapeutic models including Person Centered, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Psychodynamic. This enables me to provide the most helpful approach that will benefit you as an individual.
I understand how daunting it can be to not only reach out for help but to find the right therapist to help you. I believe the therapeutic relationship is key to a successful outcome of therapy. I offer a reduced rate for the first assessment session so you can decide if you wish to continue with further sessions. I offer a confidential and non- judgmental environment for you to explore your issues.

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)
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.
