About me

Person-centred counsellor, member of BACP

I offer sessions to children and adults, both online and face to face.

As a counsellor, I  work in a body-centred way and offer my clients the opportunity to use the expressive arts, movement and play to explore and communicate issues, feelings and meanings beyond the traditional talking therapy approach.

I support clients with issues such as :

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • emotional issues related to fertility, birth and menopause
  • bereavement
  • grief and loss
  • eating disorders
  • low self-esteem
  • relationships
  • gender identity

I work in a body-centred way and offer my clients the opportunity to use the expressive arts to explore and communicate issues, feelings and meanings beyond the traditional talking therapy approach.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
