About me

Hi, thank you for taking a look at my profile, deciding to have counselling is an important step towards making positive change in your life. To do this it is important to find a therapist who is the right fit for you so you can feel comfortable, relaxed and understood without judgement. I will treat you with warmth and respect, with counselling that is carefully tailored to your individual need. As a person-centred counsellor with 15 years experience. I am very passionate about my work. I can help you take your own personal journey towards better understanding of your feelings and experiences, identifying and enabling you to break free from any negative cycles or beliefs that hold you back. This can help you move forward and make the changes you want and deserve to improve your life. I have special interest and experience working with low self-esteem, stress, anxiety and relationship issues, whether this is with partners, family, friends or work colleagues.

Appointments can usually be arranged at short notice, with times to suit your availability.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professionally qualified member of the BACP with a degree in person centred and integrative counselling.

I have had further training in a range of subjects including:

  • Stress Management
  • Parenting and Relationship Issues
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Working with Children
  • Mental Health
  • Self Esteem
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Autism

I have 15 years varied experience in organisations such as the NHS, and charitable organisations such as Barnardos and Newcastle Carers Centre. I also deliver counselling in primary and secondary schools. 

Prior to counselling I co ordinated an NHS Support Programme for Parents and Pregnant Teenagers. I have also delivered courses to Mind, Womens Aid and the Killingworth Community.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
