I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society MNCS (Acc) and a Proficient Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My discipline is Person Centred (Rogerian) Counselling and Psychotherapy. Over the years because of my experience in a variety of settings, I have developed a good understanding of working with individuals, communities and organisations in addressing emotional and psychological needs. My work over the past 20years has taken me into schools, the voluntary sector, small businesses, statutory services, Employee Assistance Programme, and one to one counselling practices.
I pride myself in offering confidential and effective support in counselling individuals and supporting organisations in relation to meeting emotional needs and building confidence.
If life experience is causing you to feel low, anxious, depressed, and lonely, and you are finding it difficult to express yourself or speak to friends or family about what you are going through because of fear of being judged. Then, counselling might be what you need, and I can offer you the support which will lead you to greater self-awareness and acceptance of who you are so that you can begin to make your own choices and take better control of your life.

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.
