About me

I have been a Counsellor for over a decade and within that period have worked with many clients presenting with a wide variety of concerns.

Coming for therapy is your chance to be able to openly reflect on specific issues that may be causing you difficulties, relationships with self and others, your history, your hopes and dreams and you potential for desired change. Together we can co-create a safe, comfortable therapeutic space that will enable you to grow and develop as you need too.

I offer therapy to Adults and individuals 16 and over from my home in Ipswich.

I also offer Clinical Supervision to other Counsellors and student Counsellors.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
  • Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
  • Certificate in Couples Counselling.

I work solely in Private Practice now but have worked within NHS settings and for Employee Assistance Providers. I have also worked within Hospice settings and also have a professional background as a Mental Health Social Worker.

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)

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.
