About me

Counselling & Psychotherapy can help you to talk about your personal situation, difficulties and life problems in a safe and consistent setting.  By talking about your thoughts, feelings, actions and experiences, you can create a better position to understand what may be undermining your sense of well-being, self-esteem and confidence.

My practice is a professional counselling & psychotherapy service for adults providing:

Therapy for individuals and couples, creating a secure foundation for personal reflection in a contained and confidential setting.

Assistance with personal difficulties, problems and life issues, whilst respecting individual, family and cultural values.

A regard to both the conscious and unconscious processes that may be playing an important dynamic within parts of the self and in relationships with others.      

The basis for someone looking for new meaning, changes to their life and working through present day problems by acquiring insight, options and choices.

A belief in the principle that problems, anxiety and distress in the present, relate and connect to earlier life experiences.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
