Hi, you're probably looking at this page, as you are struggling with somethings in your life right now. I would like to help. I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, with ten plus years experience working with individuals like yourself, who find them struggling due to no fault of their own. I offer a safe secure non-judgemental environment, were solution and answers can be found.
Sometimes, it can feel like there is no escape. Life can be a challenging, bringing changes and difficulties to us all. During those periods we can sometimes find ourselves feeling ‘out of our depths’; or we can even feel like we have 'lost control’ of an aspect of our lives.
As a counsellor my role is to help you, to find that way forward. I will aid, guide and sometimes challenge you into exploring your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviours. My role is to help you to gain full autonomy of your life and discover the best pathway forward for you. Be that moving in a particular direction or just holding the space you are in, taking each day at a time. l will not tell you what to do, but help you to formulate informed decisions and strategies for yourself, that are comfortable for you.
For your assurance, I am an associate member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychology (BACP). Hence you can be assured that I have demonstrated myself to be a proficient and professional counsellor. I work within the parameters of their professional body’s ethical framework, and constantly strive to adhere to up-to-date codes of practice and research, thus providing the best quality of care for yourself. I am constantly refining and improving my techniques and knowledge, via engaging in up to date CPD work, on a regular basis.
As a mature therapist, I have gained and continue to gain a wrath experiences working with individuals of all ages and abilities, hence expanding my knowledge and professional skills. If you feel that I could be of help to you, please feel to get in touch.

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
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).
