About me

I am a person-centred counsellor Senior Accredited with BACP, Sessions are at your pace, acceptance, confidentiality and trust being paramount. My private practice is in a relaxed, confidential, comfortable setting, non-clinical but professional. Central to my approach is you as a person rather than the issues that you present. I offer face to face, telephone, and on-line if requested,and also home-visits

I have been qualified since 1996, working predominantly in health care environments both Private and NHS [primary and secondary care],more laterly I have extensive experience with Employee Assistance Programmes on a national level.
My aim would be to try and understand your world, what you think, feel and believe, valuing your view. I aim to give you acceptance and respect, enabling you to gain a greater understanding of yourself. Sessions are not prescriptive, but would be mutually discussed to suit your needs and regularity.

I offer a Introductory session [30min] were we can meet to discuss counselling and this is often a helpful meeting whereby you can decide whether you feel comfortable and safe to share with me and pursue the counselling process.

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.

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.

Further information

Counselling usually begins with an initial meeting, during which you will be able to sense whether you areat ease with me and would like to have further sessions. Counselling may begin at this point, or we may discuss terms of our working agreement and by talking gain a sense of whether engaging further into a professional relationship would be beneficial.

If you contact me and I can't answer in person please feel free to leave a message. I will return your call!
