About me

I have been a counsellor for 15 years and have worked in primary care [general], social services [crisis intervention], cruse [bereavement issues] and the probation and prison services [forensic work]. I have been in private practice for the last 5 years.


I work humanistically and I also use ideas and techniques from other approaches (eg CBT) if this would suit the client. I am particularly interested in attachment issues and how our early years influence our adult behaviours and lifestyles.


I offer a safe and confidential space for clients to explore their issues whether they are brought to therapy by a particular dilemma or a more general dissatisfaction with life. The  relationship between client and therapist is very important for the work and therefore I suggest that clients use the first session to make some assessment of the relationship potential. If it doesn't feel right don't feel embarrassed to say so and try another therapist.

I also work as supervisor of both individuals and groups.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
