A very warm welcome to my profile
I am a fully qualified, experienced counsellor who may be able to help you. Sometimes things can overwhelm us and it is hard to know where to turn. Counselling can help us begin to understand our thoughts and feelings and together we can work through the issues that are important to you. My counselling aims to suit each person as an individual, so our sessions would be tailor made for you. The client experiencing non-judgemental therapy – with no blame, no shame is paramount to me.
Over the years I have found that my work as a Counsellor has become more of a passion rather than simply a profession. Previous clients have stated that they have found me to be a warm, caring counsellor who is very approachable. I hope that this will allow you to feel safe and ensure you feel as comfortable as possible to be able to share your troubling issues with me.
You are brave and have identified that you need some support at this very difficult time. Life is complicated and can leave us with feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. These negative feelings make life overwhelming. I provide a safe, secure and confidential setting where personal issues, problems, thoughts and feelings can be explored. I will listen in a non-judgemental manner with empathy, understanding and acceptance, helping you to identify and explore whatever is troubling you.
I offer a free 30 minute assessment in which we can look at your needs and discuss the way I work which will then give you a sense of whether or not you wish to pursue further sessions. I appreciate this is a huge step and making that initial call to me will hopefully be the next step for you to move forward.

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).
