About me

I am a qualified and BACP accredited counsellor with over thirteen years experience of working in various organisations and sectors  including  education sector, NSPCC, voluntary sector and NHS.

Seeking professional help can be difficult and that is why a open, trusting relationship between client(s) and counsellor is crucial for effective counselling. I offer a confidential  space to discuss and work through issues you may be facing.

I work with a variety of issues, both short-term and long-term counselling, depending on individual needs. I work integratively with a foundation in person-centred counselling, providing CBT and TA techniques where appropriate.

I offer counselling in the Dronfield area but within easy access of Sheffield and Chesterfield. I also work remotely through telephone or video call.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss how I can help you prior to starting your counselling by email or telephone.

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.
