About me

My approach is person centred, I work empathically and creatively to make sure that my clients are provided with a safe space where they are able to explore past and/or present issues freely, in a non judgmental way.

Self care is vital in the therapeutic journey therefore a large part of my work with individuals is to encourage them to develop their own self care. I support individuals to take control so that they feel empowered to make changes and discover their own solutions. I value the importance of the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and the client.

I offer an introductory 30 minute session so you are able to make your own decision if I am right counsellor for you. Please contact me to arrange a time to meet. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
