About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor with a variety of experience in age and subjects. I understand that life can be challenging in lots of ways and I offer extended practice hours to support this, including weekends.

The counselling relationship can help you in many ways, giving you a safe place to explore and understand your unique situation.

I am here to listen and help without a bias input and can offer coping methods.
My experience and strength as a counsellor enables me to work with whatever you bring.

I have experience in working with the age range of 7 years old to Adult and have specialised in adolescent work.

To get started either call or email me to arrange a 20 minute free first session for us to meet. In our 20 minutes we can discuss what you would like to get out of counselling, if you would like to continue we can agree on a regular day and time to meet. The sessions are available on line or in person.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.
