About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, and just don’t know where to turn? You just can’t see a way forward and the problems keep going round and round, but not going anywhere.

Life can throw us some really difficult curved balls, as I know from personal experience, and the past months have certainly created some very difficult experiences and situations especially as a result of COVID.

WHY I BECAME A COUNSELLOR

I was going through a pretty horrendous divorce having been in an emotionally abusive relationship for several years. I had lost my confidence and almost myself. So, I sought counselling. I found it really helpful, a place where I could share all my worries, without being judged, someone who was impartial, who offered me a different perspective. That’s when I realised how powerful Counselling can be, and I wanted to be able to help others.

HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP

Sometimes the thought of Counselling can feel daunting. But, it provides a safe space for you to share and explore your worries. There is no emotional attachment, as with someone close to you. Often having someone to talk the problem through with can be enough. At other times the issues are more deep-rooted, and it may take some time to figure out why you keep repeating the same negative patterns. Whichever it is, I’m here to help and support you, and then to help you figure out the best solution that works for you. Counselling is certainly not about giving advice or telling you what to do. I offer a 30-minute chat where you can get to know me, and ask any questions you may have, and find out whether I’m the right person for you.

All I would say is that if you don’t take that step, nothing will change. So why not take your courage in both hands and do something about it.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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
