I am a member of the BACP and an accredited member with NCS. I have substantial experience working with both children and adults. I work in primary schools and also in the community to provide quality counselling to help people be the best they can be. I am also CEO of a mental health charity and offer consultancy work as well as supervision.
My approach is integrative so that I can tailor the service specifically for individual clients and for what you need at the time. I offer short term work of six weeks for some clients and longer term work. I also offer personal therapy for students training to be counsellors.
You have taken an important step today even by looking at my profile and I am happy to chat on the phone to discuss your first appointment and put your mind at ease. Please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible if I am unavailable at the time.

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.

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).
