If anxiety, past issues or other problems are having a negative effect on your life, counselling can help. Please contact me for more information and perhaps we can make a start on resolving your issues. It may not be as difficult as you think.
I provide integrative counselling and CBT and so tailor my counselling approach to suit your problems. You can be assured of a friendly, safe and confidential consultation.
I am mature, friendly and approachable with varied life experiences. I work in an empathic, non-judgmental way believing that people are experts on themselves and deserve acceptance and understanding. Also that people have the desire to realise their potential and are capable of change.
I attempt to build an effective working relationship which is paramount to successful therapy. I provide short and long term counselling as required whilst being conscious of your need to explore each issue thoroughly.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, MNCS (Accred). I am qualified in integrative counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with over 15 years counselling experience, always working within the BACP Code of Ethics & Practice.
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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
