I am an accredited BACP counsellor and psychotherapist with more than 20 years of counselling experience. I work with individuals and couples, and am trained in both short term solution focussed work and in long term psychotherapy.
I use an integrative approach in my work, which means I choose the most appropriate strand from my training (Person Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT) to help a particular client or couple, with a particular issue or difficulty.
I offer a warm and professional service, in my pleasant counselling office, at Friary Business Centre in the centre of Newark. There is parking and sessions last for 1 hour.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited BACP counsellor with over 20 years of professional experience. I have worked for RELATE as a counsellor and a trainer, as a student counsellor in F.

Since 2002 I have worked in private practice in Newark, where I see people who have referred themselves alongside people from Employment Assistance Programmes such as PPC, Right Management and BUPA.
I am BUPA registered.
I have a B.Sc. from King's College, London, alongside a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a RELATE trained couples therapist and have a certificate in couples counselling and also have an Advanced Diploma in CBT.
Registered / Accredited
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.

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).
