Welcome to my profile. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor of 16 years standing and offer face to face sessions at two locations, one in Sale and one in Urmston, both of which are comfortable, discreet, and easily accessible. I also provide 'remote' therapy for those clients who prefer it, via Zoom or telephone. Clients can choose to have just a few sessions, or come for a longer period - I am happy to work with you and to provide the support you need for as long as you need it.
I use the approach of 'person-centred' counselling, which gives you the time and space to explore the issues that are troubling you, either related to your current life, or from past events. I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques, for those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, phobias and so on.

Training, qualifications & experience
I hold the Diploma in Counselling and a Certificate in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I am a full registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work according to their principles and ethics. I have experience of working with a wide range of individuals, some of this gained in a hospital occupational health counselling service.
I am also qualified as a supervisor of counsellors and hold a Certificate in Supervision.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
