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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
