About me

We all have times in our life when we struggle or feel like we can't cope. Sometimes we feel stuck, unhappy, unfulfilled or just don't know what to do next.

I hope to help by offering you a confidential space to share your thoughts and feelings. I am non-judgemental and can work with you to explore whatever it may be that is going on for you. I am a warm, welcoming, accepting, friendly and fully qualified counsellor.

I have worked with clients who have struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, career issues, bereavement, traumatic experiences, family difficulties, abuse, abortion, plus more. I can work with you by supporting you with your struggles and giving you the space to talk about what is going on for you. I can offer you a different perspective and work with you to explore any difficulties you're facing, helping to create a positive change in your life.

You will lead the way through your therapeutic journey and I will support you throughout. A trusting relationship is the core of successful therapy.

I offer text based and telephone counselling sessions as I understand some of the challenges of seeing a counsellor face to face.

Member organisations

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
Accredited Register Scheme

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.
