About me


Life is never straight forward is it...... it can be challenging to say the least, never more so than when we feel truly up against it, whether this is due to stress, anxiety or suddenly being faced with a life changing event. We are creatures of habit, we don't like to bother people with our worries, after all, they probably have enough of their own don't they......? Sometimes, we just need to be listened to, to offload, to find some clarity through a muddling or worrying time or to just be able to express our sadness without feeling guilty or self indulgent.


In my years in practice, I have worked with many clients who have presented with a range of different issues and concerns, including bereavement, low self esteem, anxiety, social phobia, depression, panic and couples in crisis. I have also worked with young people experiencing problems with addiction and self harm or some who have just lost direction.

I also have extensive experience of working with children, both in a school environment and in practice; anger, behavioural problems or divorce/separation of parents and bereavement.


If you would like to know more about the counselling process and how it may benefit you please email me with your contact details and I will get back to you...


I am a member of the BACP.
I also hold an enhanced DBS check

Member organisations

BACP

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.
