I work with children, teenagers, adults, couples and relationship counselling.Currently working within doctors surgeries all over the north west and in my office.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have worked for two other counselling organisations and now as a private counsellor for the last few years and taking on referrals.
I started my studies working with children where I achieved NVQ level 2 and diploma in child care. I also studied and worked on the child grief team for a company.
I have over 18 years of mental health training and experience and also over 16 years of working with deaf people and I am fluent in British sign language level 6. I have my own private office with free private parking directly outside the office in Shaw.

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.
