About me

I am committed to a confidential, non-judgemental and respectful approach. Above all I want you to know I am sincere and passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. I believe we all have the ability to challenge how things are for us, to improve our circumstances, to accept the past and move towards improving our situation.

We can work together to explore and make sense of whatever is troubling you and look to heal the hurt. I won’t tell you what to do, but together we can find solutions.

My aim is to create a trusting relationship between us in which you can feel accepted, be in touch with your feelings and talk about your concerns, to find ways to cope, grow and heal and gain insight to understand yourself better.

My therapy is person centred and encourages acceptance, forgiveness, self-respect and love for yourself and others.

Our first conversation will be an opportunity for you to share all that has weighed you down and brought you to counselling.  Along with what you would like from the counselling process. 

We can also talk about whether counselling is right for you at this moment and agree on when we can meet on future occasions. 

I can then send the counselling paperwork to you by email (if you have access) before our first session, to minimise the time spent completing this.

Payment is made in cash at the start of the session or by bank transfer at least two hours before the start of the session.

I offer a free 30 minute initial conversation by phone or by zoom.

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
