About me

I am an experienced integrative therapist. This means I have been trained to use a range of techniques, from different approaches, to suit your individual needs. 

I meet your difficulties and challenges head on and I welcome all your emotions in the therapy room. I am there with you whilst you explore these, sometimes uncomfortable, feelings. 

I understand it can't be hard to tell a stranger your most private thoughts and feelings and I will be asking about your world and learning all about you, your family, your thinking, your feelings. Sometimes people are not ready to do this in their first session and that's okay. The therapy will be at your pace.

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.
