MBACP, Dip.Couns, Integrative Counsellor

About me

I'm a member of the BACP with over 10 years of experience in various settings, including substance misuse and mental health within the NHS. I'm a qualified Counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling, alongside a certification in Counselling for Depression. I am committed to continuing my professional development, my training taking many routes, such as creative therapy tools, relational trauma and working with grief.

Whether seeking support to explore specific life experiences or looking for a space to understand yourself and any difficulties affecting you, I work within a range of therapeutic approaches to ensure a tailored experience focused on your individual needs. I understand the courage it can take to reach out and access support. I intend to provide you with a warm, safe and comfortable environment where we can explore your reasons for entering into therapy. I will listen to you carefully and non-judgementally. Together we can engage in identifying your inner skills, allowing you to build on your emotional well-being. Working towards a place where you feel you have processed your experience and are more able to move forward with your life.

As an ethical practitioner, I adhere to BACP ethical guidelines which include attending regular clinical supervision.

I presently work online, offering video sessions only. This will save you travel time and allows me to be accessible to all areas. I have a variety of options for you to utilise secure video sessions, including hosts that don't require a download or account. Simply click the email link, and it will take you straight to our session. We discuss this in full at the initial session enquiry and booking, so you're fully prepped for your initial consultation. I provide a mixture of appointment times from Monday - Thursday, dependant on availability.

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.
