My approach to counselling is to offer you space away from your daily life so that we can focus on you. I will be curious to understand how you are feeling, in a warm and non-judgemental way, so that you can gain some understanding and clarity around the challenges you are facing. My role will be to help you to express your emotions, to discover new ways of experiencing things, which will lead to helping you resolve the difficulties that have brought you to seek out therapeutic help.
If you would like to book an appointment, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on 07851479765. I have appointments available during the day and evening.

I have experience working as a counsellor at the NHS.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
