About me

I have many years experience in developing corporate teams and helping the individuals within them to achieve their full potential. This led me to the wider field of Life Coaching and realising the many cross-over skills I could take from my corporate background into counselling, I trained and qualified as a counsellor.

I now collaborate with people who find themselves suffering with depression or anxiety and the low or poor self-esteem that can be associated with it.

In addition I have worked extensively with people from the LGBT community who have found added pressures associated with their personal circumstances.

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.

Key details

Unfortunately the counselling room is on the first floor and access is up stairs. Should this present an issue perhaps we could discuss alternative arrangements via an online initial session.
