About me

Hi my names Terry, I am a Person Centred trained Counsellor, trained in solution focus brief work and CBT trained. I also work as a group facilitator and specialise in anxiety symptoms. I have worked for various charity organisations, worked with clients home based and NHS clinics for Bereavement and terminally ill patients. I work with a number of organisations undertaking EAP work.

I offer one to one Counselling to clients from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. I endeavour to provide you as my client with non-judgemental space which you can explore your feelings, thoughts and experiences and find the solution to your problems.

I will neither tell you what to do nor offer you advice. This unique relationship between the client and Counsellor will be the foundation of our work. This relationship is created specifically in your service to facilitate and support your efforts to find the solution to your problems.

Member organisations


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.
