As an experienced and qualified therapist I believe how we each make sense of life is unique to us. Understanding how you feel about what is happening, or happened, can sometimes be difficult and confusing. I offer the opportunity and space for exploring how you feel in a safe and private setting. I will help you look at issues such as relationships, bereavement, anger-management, self-esteem, eating disorders, and stress-related difficulties.
I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I work with adults both on a long or short term basis, in sessions which are 50 minutes long. I also work with couples where sessions are 60 minutes long on either short or longer term. I have a confidential answerphone where you can leave your contact details.
Taking the step of seeking support can be challenging and I will endeavour to make this experience a welcoming and rewarding one.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).
