About me

Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. Below is a little about me and how I work.

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering both face to face and online therapy to individual clients aged 18+. I am currently studying my Supervision Level 6 so am offering low cost supervision through this time until I qualify in June 2024.

Talking to somebody about how you feel can be a very rewarding experience. Whatever it is, anxiety, depression, bereavement or grief, work related stress, relationship issues or just a general sense of malaise, we can talk through it all in a safe, empathic and non judgemental space.

At times we battle with an emotion such as anxiety, or a fear/phobia and we can't quite put our finger on why? We may be able to see that a pattern of some sort has occurred throughout our lives, mostly within our relationships, but again we don't understand why.

By forming a therapeutic relationship, based on absolute trust, we will work together at whatever pace you feel most comfortable with. I very much believe that everybody is an individual and the work we do will be unique to your own life events and circumstances.

I offer a free 15 min telephone chat, this helps us get to know each other a little prior to potentially setting up our first session. I am registered with Aviva, Aetna Global, CIGNA and Vitality Health Insurance. Please call or email me to set up this initial discussion. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma Psychotherapeutic Counselling Integrative Route. Currently undertaking my Supervision Course so offering low cost supervision to other counsellors during this time. 

Many years of my own therapy and now extensive experience working as a counsellor with a number of clients aged 18+ with a range of issues.

My previous life was working with children aged 2-9 years old, alongside their parents, in an educational setting, as well as running my own business for many years.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).
