Ethical Fully-Qualified Professional

I am a practitioner member registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (the BACP is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority set up by the UK Government's Health & Social Care Department). The BACP is a voluntary register and professional body with an ethical framework, which we as practitioners adhere to, in order to ensure that you as a client are receiving the best possible therapeutic care.

The counselling professions are widely unregulated and people without suitable qualificatons can still legally call themselves a counsellor and potentially harm vulnerable clients due to lack of training. I am DBS checked and work to a very high, professional standard with the appropriate training certifications, competency and professional membership which I hope will assure you, as my client, that you are in safe hands.

For more than a decade, through the course of my career and vocation, I have developed a creative and community-oriented approach, with specialised therapeutic skills. I continue to put people's wellbeing at the centre of my research, amidst local and planetary issues.

I practise contextually taking into account the relevance of ancestral and historic, geopolitical, socioeconomic, environmental, systemic and biological factors affecting peoples' emotional and mental wellbeing and relationships, and capacities to thrive.

I apply my phenomenological practice-based research to amplify the efficacy of evidence-based, empirical techniques integrated in a pluralistic person-centred way. All my therapeutic work is clinically supervised according to professional standards.
