About me

WORKING WITH YOU, TO FIND A WAY FORWARD....  I am a Registered Counsellor and Senior Accredited Member of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), offering you a service tailored to your needs and requirements.  I work with Adult individuals on both a long and short term basis.

I have over 18 years of experience, working with a range of issues including:

Anxiety, Assertiveness Skills Development, Bereavement, Bullying, Carer Support, Career Development, Depression, Generalised Anxiety, General Counselling, Grief, Low Self Esteem, Low Self Confidence, Management Development, Personal Coaching, Personal Development, Relationship Issues, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Stress and Work Related Issues, to name just a few.

I have a special interest in working with Stress, Stress Management and Work Related Stress issues and have had training in recognising and coping with Stress and it's effects.

In addition to self referrals, I also work with:

  • Human Resource (HR) Departments for Private Organisations
  • Other Counselling Organisations
  • Student Counsellors in Training

My original Counsellor Training was in the Humanistic Approach.  This means that I see you as a unique individual capable of making choices, asking for what you need and able to take responsibility for your own actions.

Once qualified and through my experiences of working with individuals in the Criminal Justice System, I developed an interest in working with the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach to Counselling (thought and behavioural patterns) and feel that the way I work as a Counsellor complements both theories and approaches.

I love working as a Counsellor because I have a desire to make a difference in the life of others.

I have had many occasions in Counselling Practice where I have seen "light bulbs go on" and witnessed my client telling me that their life has changed as a result of new insight.

This is a joy for me to be a part of.  Seeing another grow, through recognition that they can and realising that they can do this through their own abilities, is essentially why I work as a Counsellor.

When I embark on a Counselling relationship all I ever ask of myself is that I give my best to you, using the best techniques and theory, I am aware of to help and educate you.

If you like, give you the tools to work with.  The rest is up to you, you work within the process and take what you need from it.

  • Counselling Takes Place in a Confidential Setting and is an equal partnership where we work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, patterns and options
  • The Aim of Counselling is to enable you to make sense of your situation, whilst working towards coming to terms with new experiences and facing them with less tension and anxiety.
  • Counselling Involves looking at yourself and your problem and ways in which you can feel more at ease within your situation to begin to make decisions about where you want to be, by looking at where you are now

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Senior Accreditation means that my practice has been deemed to meet the BACP higher standard, as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner.

My BACP Registration Number is 025638. My Registration and Accreditation details can be verified via the BACP website www.bacp.co.uk

I also have Senior Accredited Registrant Membership of The National Counselling Society, having been considered by The National Counselling Society to be safe, competent and ethical to practise the vocation of Counselling

As a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure therein for the time being in force and as revised from time to time.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.   If you decide that Counselling may be of benefit to you and that I may be the right Counsellor for you, please contact me to arrange an appointment.

Member organisations

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 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.

I aim to respond to enquiries within 24 hours.  However, please be advised that if you contact me over a weekend, my response time may take longer.

I have also completed the following course - "How to do Counselling Online: A Coronavirus Primer (2020)"- The Open University & BACP Free Course), Completion of this course enables me to work on line, during the current COVID 19 Pandemic, at a time when face to face therapy, is neither possible nor safe.  However I am obliged to state, by my Professional Body, (BACP), that I have never received any formal training in working online. I undertook this course, purely to enable me to continue working with my existing clients during the COVID 19 lockdown, should they wish to receive ongoing support. Online Counselling is not a service I normally offer, as I am not fully professionally trained in this field. I have not fully undertaken this training, as I prefer to work face to face, in person, with my clients.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

As I only offer face to face, in person, counselling sessions, I am unable to offer any sessions, until current COVID 19 Government Restrictions are lifted  Many Thanks
