At times our lives can become more challenging, this may be due to a significant event or the result of a feeling of overwhelm that builds over time. Sometimes it can be helpful to have the opportunity to talk about what is going on for us with someone who is not a part of our everyday lives. My role as a counsellor is to listen and to work with you to create a space where you can feel safe and supported to explore thoughts and feelings. As a Person Centred Counsellor I am focused on your individual needs and what your goals are for our work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in Higher Education where I have worked in student experience, support and wellbeing for almost 20 years. It was a natural progression for me to move into counselling and I continue to provide counselling support to students within a local University.

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.
