Hi, I am a professionally qualified integrative counsellor currently working online due to Covid-19. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
If you are feeling that relationships or events in your life are difficult you are not alone. We all have times when we feel we cannot control or understand our emotions resulting in behaviours that confuse us. Counselling can help you work through these issues and explore why you may repeat them. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place for you to talk and to be truly heard.
I believe that the relationship between a counsellor and the person they support is crucial to successful therapy, so I offer a reduced fee first assessment session of 30 minutes for us to meet under no obligation.
I work therapeutically on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bereavement, abuse, relationship issues, eating disorders, stress and trauma.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £20 for your initial 30 minute assessment. This appointment gives both parties a chance to get a sense of compatibility and there is no obligation to continue working together.
However, should we then agree to start working together, each regular session is charged at £50 (Counselling Student/Young Person rate £30). Some reduced fees are available for those on low/no income, but must be negotiated.
