I believe everyone can benefit from therapy at certain points in their lives and that caring for our mental health is as important as caring for our physical health. I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and also an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Counselling is your time and space for us to work together to find insight into your issues and develop strategies to help you cope with the complexities of life. I work using an integrative approach that allows us to find the unique way for you to achieve personal growth and attain your goals.
I work with adults, adolescents and young people who have a variety of issues they would like to explore including anxiety and depression to more specific concerns. Since qualifying I have provided therapy for charities, NHS IAPT services offering short term counselling, in secondary/boarding schools as well as in my own private practice. I have experience with Anxiety, Depression, Inter-personal Relationships, Complex Trauma, Grief and Loss, Adolescents & School Counselling, Couples/Relationship and Psychosexual counselling.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and am fully insured. I aim to offer a friendly, non-judgemental and confidential service where you will feel at ease. Together we can explore difficulties and work towards achieving your goals and personal development.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
