About me

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with 30 years experience as a counsellor in Private Practice, Further Education, and various charities.
I was also a Lecturer in Counselling and Psychology for 15 years.
I offer brief Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as longer term Psychodynamic, Systemic and Existential Psychotherapy.
I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.
Whatever is troubling you I will work with you to find the solution whether you are facing a major loss or trauma, struggling in a relationship, finding your way through a spiritual/emotional crisis or recovering from an addiction.
I will help you to explore and understand your feelings, identify your personal values and goals and achieve the changes that you want to make.
If you are suffering from symptoms that may be stress related I can work with you on ways to reduce and manage the stress and develop a more fulfilling lifestyle.

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.

BPS

British Psychological Society (BPS)

British Psychological Society

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

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.
