About me

I am a counsellor who believes in the importance of attempting to understand ourselves and our place in the world. Seeking support in this process can be hugely valuable. I look to provide space and collaboration to explore difficulties, and to try and make a bit more sense of one's experiences, whatever they may be.

I provide a free consultation of around thirty minutes, which can lead to face-to-face, online video or phone sessions of one hour.

I currently offer this service for those aged 18 and above, am insured, follow the BACP ethical guidelines, am DBS checked and supervised in my practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, the result of three years of study, and am a member of the BACP.

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.
