About me

I know that talking about challenging personal issues can feel really difficult sometimes and working with a counsellor can be the start of finding a way forward. I am friendly, easy to talk to and keen to help if you feel talking to a professional might help you. I am a person-centred psychotherapeutic counsellor, working in a relational way which means that I always put you the client at the heart of the work and the therapeutic relationship we form is key to helping you fulfil your desired potential. I work in a non-directional way and I fully believe that given the right set of conditions everyone is capable of achieving what feels right and is best for them. 

I work in a comfortable, central Plymouth location and we would ideally work together once a week although I understand life is complicated so every other week might suit you better.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Counselling and an additional diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I worked previously as a counsellor at the Bereavement Counselling Service and currently work for another counselling Service within Plymouth and am an associate with other Counselling agencies. I became a counsellor after many years having worked within Education.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
