About me

I qualified in 2002 with an MA in Counselling from Durham University. I worked in the NHS in Primary Care for 18 years delivering counselling in GP surgeries.

I work Thursdays morning face to face. Tuesday evening from 4pm Thursday afternoon and all day Fridays online through video calls.

Everyone needs something different from the therapy space. I believe at the heart of the work is the need for you the client to feel safe, heard and not judged and for you to experience me as being real. This then creates an environment for you to make sense and to work through the problems that you have been experiencing.

I offer you a safe, soulful space to do the work you need to do.

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.
