Member organisations


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.


Additional information

Sessions are offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and last for 60 minutes. I work in person from my home, by telephone or online. I can also offer walking sessions if you want to take your therapy outdoors. Sessions cost £50 each, payable on or before each session. The first session is half price.

Further information

There can be a stigma associated with reaching out for mental health support. Absolutely no one should suffer alone through life’s difficulties.

Whether you are struggling with self esteem, sexuality issues, a recent or historical trauma, relationship issues, problems at work, bereavement, domestic abuse or many other problems, counselling could be hugely beneficial.

Having a trusted, confidential person to talk to can enable you to make sense of yourself and the world around you, and achieve the changes and understanding you are seeking. Counselling can be a challenging path, requiring honesty and openness, but leading to life changing results.

I work in a relaxed and friendly environment, building a trusting and healing relationship between myself and you as my client.

Finding the right counsellor for you is vital to achieve your therapeutic goals. For this reason I offer the first session at half price, in order for us to meet and get a feel for whether we are best suited to work together.
