I have been working as a Counsellor since 2000. I am fully qualified having achieved my Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling from Warwick University in 2000 and I am a member of BACP.
I offer a friendly, safe, sensitive and non-judgmental space where you can talk about the issues that are affecting your life.
I have experience in working with both adults and young people who are struggling with relationships, stress and anxiety, panic attacks, self esteem issues and bereavement. I also have experience in Pet bereavement.
As mentioned previously, I offer a friendly, sensitive, safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore the issues that are affecting your life. I have a very relaxed style of working whilst staying within professional boundaries. I receive regular Supervision to ensure that I am working safely and ethically and giving you the support that you need.

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).
