About me

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
