...are perhaps one of the reasons that you are seeking counselling. The fact that you are reading this means that you have already taken an important first step towards getting the help or support that you need.
I have over twenty years of experience working with children, young people and their parents and adults and have worked in many different counselling settings such as agencies, schools and private practice.
In addition to running my private practice I also work in schools offering counselling to students and staff as well as running group sessions. I offer an initial session at a reduced rate where we can discuss your individual needs, giving you the opportunity to ask questions and explore together the best way forward for you. I also offer a limited number of weekend and evening appointments and some concessions.

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.
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.
