I have over 20 years' as a counsellor, committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment for people to explore the issues which are troublesome for them. This can be on on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, but the aim of the therapy is always to enable you to enhance your life, to live it more fully and to face the future with courage.
I offer one-to-one supervision and consultation for counsellors, therapists and other practitioners seeking a collaborative and creative approach to supporting and developing their work.
Training, qualifications & experience
My core training (1996 - 2000) was in Individual Psychology and Adlerian Counselling. Individual Psychology is built on the philosophical work of Alfred Adler. I hold a Diploma in Adlerian Counselling (2000) and Certificates in Counselling and Advanced Counselling Skills.
Other therapeutic models I have studied include Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, the Person-Centred approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness.
I hold a Diploma in Integrative Supervision and have more than 12 years’ experience as a supervisor in a clinical setting as well as in private practice where my supervisees bring a variety of issues from anxiety and depression to gender dysphoria and family counselling.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
