About me

I work online and in Cambridge offering short or long-term counselling. My aim is to provide a warm, safe and confidential environment in which clients feel comfortable to talk about their lives. I also offer supervision to other counsellors and therapists.

Coming to counselling can be daunting and finding the right counsellor is crucial.  Building trust and forging a relationship is essential and I am committed to every client - the focus is very much on the individual.

As a Registered Member of the BACP, I adhere to its Ethical Framework.


How I work:
I offer a mix and match style of counselling using a variety of techniques and working with different approaches (in counselling terms this is called an integrative person-centred approach).  I feel it is important to recognise that we are all different and therefore we all have different needs – what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another.

If you would like to learn more about how I work and what counselling is, please text or leave a voicemail, or you can email me and I will get back to you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
