I'm an integrative relational counsellor. That means I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches, but most importantly I work to develop an empathetic, trusting relationship that helps you to a deeper understanding of what makes you tick.
I love working with people of all ages to help them overcome feelings such as anxiety, depression and that nagging sense of pointlessness which dogs so many of us.
For me, the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the key to success. I will work with you to explore the way you think, feel, sense and perceive the world. We will sit together, as equals. I will offer empathy, support and, if it will be helpful, challenge.
Most of all, I will listen to you.
When we meet, we will agree on what we are working towards and consider what progress will look like for you. In this way I will attempt to ensure that your experience of counselling will be unique, individualised and relevant.
If you would like a flavour of some of my areas of interest, please visit my website nooncounselling.com, which provides more detail and editions of my blog.
Call (07395 132908) or email (email@example.com) and I'll arrange for a complimentary 20 minute phone session; when we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you're happy to continue, we can make plans for further sessions, usually on a weekly basis.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
