About me

As a Person-Centred practitioner, Empathy, Acceptance and Honesty are at the core of my practice. I bring a warmth to the counselling room which allows my clients a safe place to explore whatever they bring.  I  believe that in viewing each person as an individual a unique process takes place, where, through active listening, healing can occur.

I work with a wide range of issues. In particular working with trauma , complex PTSD, dealing with anxiety, anger, shame, guilt, flashbacks, nightmares etc.., I have learnt that although past events cannot be changed , what can be changed over time is the relationship with your feelings in regard to the trauma and what you have grown to believe about yourself.  I offer you my support in finding an inner place where you can feel comfortable with yourself. 

In recent years society has undertaken enormous changes leading many people to much anxiety and uncertainty, bringing up issues like emotional distress, loneliness, isolation and social anxiety. Finding a way to deal with it on your own can be a struggle and you may find that support within a confidential space can be of great help. 

Clients can choose how many sessions they have and how long the counselling process lasts and although for many this can be a place where problems are addressed it can also be an exciting opportunity to explore personal growth.

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.
