About me

I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Psychotherapist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist based in Standish

I have experience of success whilst working with a wide range of issues and have been qualified since 2010.

I run my own practice from my home address which ensures complete confidentiality and a setting conducive to positive outcomes.

As a Counsellor I will create a safe therapeutic environment for you, from where you can freely explore your thoughts and feelings. I will offer you confidentiality and a non-judgemental approach while we work together addressing issues which are current or those that may come up for you during counselling sessions.

Along with the work carried out in my private practise I also fulfil the role of School Counsellor at a High School. This involves work with young people between the age of 11-16.

Member organisations


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.
