About me

I am an experienced Counsellor & Psychotherapist, Supervisor & Master NLP Coach working with individuals, couples & groups.  I offer online counselling sessions. I have worked with many people for over 20 years with issues such as generalised anxiety, abuse, depression, self esteem, confidence, burnout, career change, relationship issues, separation and divorce, identity, loss, bereavement, illness.... I supervise  trainee & experienced counsellors as well as organisations supervising groups working with crisis.  Most of my referrals come from years of word of mouth and returning clients and from Universities and Colleges for student counsellors and supervisees.

I have lectured on the HE cert, Dip & MA courses at Leeds Universities combined with Advisory roles, Consulting & Directing counselling services so you can be assured of the highest professional service.

Twenty years experience within the counselling field as an accredited and registered relational counsellor with BACP integrating CBT.

I have managed my busy private practice for many years integrating coaching which is an exciting opportunity for thinking & working together on change.

My practice is based online.

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.

Accredited register membership
