About me

I work as a counsellor, therapist and supervisor, work online and have clinics in Lytham and Preston, Lancashire and offer daytime and early evening appointments.  I am committed to the well being of my clients, offering a warm and supportive environment and fully confidential service. If you have any questions about how I could help you, please do not hesitate to call or email me.

Identifying and working through the beliefs that you have about yourself, beliefs often established in early life and adolescence, can have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself, your life and your relationships today.  As a trained therapist and counsellor, I use a range of therapeutic approaches to improve emotional or psychological issues.  My job is to provide the supportive conditions to help you to grow, learn, heal and develop your resilience.

I work with both individuals and couples and I am pragmatic in my approach to my work. When people come to see me they are usually feeling quite low. They have often tried unsuccessfully to deal with a particular issue through a variety of approaches and tend to be looking for the quickest and most effective way to change the way they feel or behave. 

For therapists looking for supervision, please see my supervision listing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and am a registered member of BACP and work according to the ethical guidelines of these associations. I am a member of the EMDR Association and I have an enhanced DBS clearance which may be seen on request.

I am an experienced therapist and supervisor offering counselling, CBT and psychotherapy services. I have a breadth of therapeutic and life experience and in addition have worked as a trainer and coach for many years in a variety of professional settings.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
