I provide a confidential counselling service to adult individuals and couples at a time in their lives when they need support to deal with complicated or distressing issues. I can offer a caring space for a client to be heard in an atmosphere of warmth, safety and acceptance.
I work in an integrated humanistic way drawing on a variety of models and tools to support each client's unique requirements counselling those with stress and anxiety, relationship problems, low self esteem, low mood, bereavement and loss, unresolved life issues, personal development and self-awareness needs. I have specialisms in addictions and bereavement.
I offer face to face, online and Skype counselling.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics and Good Practice.

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).
