Thank you for visiting my profile, let me tell you a little about the way I work. I offer a safe, therapeutic space to address issues through one-to-one counselling on a weekly basis both short term and long term. I practise within a philosophy that is strongly based on the principle of a person-centred approach. I believe that by providing a non-judgemental, accepting, therapeutic space in which one is free to address chosen issues, which may include bereavement, depression, anxiety and addiction, as well as many others this allows the person to be at the centre of ones own process. My core belief being that Clients work at their own pace with their chosen issues and are offered this space to do just that. We review together every six weeks which allows the process to be client led. please feel free to telephone me for more information.

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.
