Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. If you choose to contact me I can offer you the services of an experienced, qualified, BACP Accredited Counsellor. It will be your opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, comfortable and confidential environment.
I am a caring and compassionate person and am dedicated to helping my clients achieve their goals.
Counselling can be short or long term, depending on the problem and your individual needs.
One of my specialisms is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which has been proven to help with anxiety and depression. It can be extremely successful and many of my clients have overcome their fears and negative thought processes.
I have 15 years experience of working in GP Surgeries and 25 years experience of running my own private practice.
I am BUPA registered and many of my clients have their fees paid by their health insurance companies.

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 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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
