About me

Tired of managing a health condition?  Lost your mojo and identity through illness?  Wanting to make healthier choices?

I will help you find your best way of reclaiming health and quality of life.

Sessions include:

·        Help with mindset and mood regulation

·        Building on strengths and key values

·        Finding new coping skills and identifying those that already work 

·        Rebuilding resilience and purpose

Time to find your resourceful inner state - rediscover your authentic self, find what helps you thrive in life, what gives you pleasure, connection and purpose.

Member organisations

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.
