I am a qualified BACP Accredited, Link Adoption Counsellor with many years experience of working with clients from many walks of life from older teenagers who are becoming adults to retired people who may have lost a sense of direction.

What qualifications do I have?

  • BA (Hons) Integrative Counselling

  • FdA in Counselling

  • Diploma in Counselling

I work for the NHS, a University, Barnardo’s and various EAP’s (Employee Assistance Programmes) and Healthcare Insurers.

Prior to joining the NHS, I worked for social services for 7 years and at a school working with adolescents.

Why Integrative?

I decided to study on an integrative counselling degree course in order to form my own integrative framework rather than be completely set on one theory.

Integration is based on differing counselling theories where the counsellor is able through their own experiences and philosophy to create a way of working which enables them to offer their clients something unique and genuine.  This is tried and tested over the career of the counsellor.


I have completed courses on:

  • Child Protection and Safeguarding Children

  • Domestic Abuse

  • Equality and Diversity

  • Data Protection

  • POVA (Protection of vulnerable adults)

  • Unisafe

  • Challenging Behaviour

I have an up to date DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check available for you to see on request.  (This is in place of the old CRB check)

Code of Ethics

As an Accredited Member of BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.

I believe that the most important person in the relationship is the client and not the counsellor. The code of conduct is based upon the premise that as a counsellor I will act in the best interests of the client.

I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy .. “ethical framework”
