About me

I offer a friendly, caring and confidential space and support people with short-term challenges and longer-term personal change. I help you to understand anxieties and problems in your life in a way that makes sense to you. You may be experiencing difficulties related to events happening in your life at the moment, or deep-seated problems that have been with you for a long time.

I believe that exploring difficulties and gaining a better understanding of ourselves supports changing unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and provides confidence in moving forwards. Exploring our experiences and responses can allow us to regain a sense of freedom and spontaneity and help us to manage relationships and live the life we want.

I offer face-to-face appointments in my therapy room or outdoors in Grange-over-Sands. I also offer online appointments over Zoom. 

I offer a range of options if you'd like to work face-to-face outdoors, from sitting and talking in a quiet space through to hill walking together. Do get in touch if you'd like more information about outdoor therapy.

I have a degree in Social Work, a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Counselling, and many years’ experience of supporting people in different settings.

I offer a free 30 minute first session, which gives you a chance to meet me and get a sense of how I work. It also gives us both the opportunity to agree whether we would like to work together. Subsequent sessions are an hour long.

I am happy to respond on the phone or via email or text to any queries you may have before scheduling an appointment.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
