About me

If your searching for a Counsellor then I understand you have reached a point in your life when you are ready to look at issues that are having an impact on you. Maybe causing you day to day difficulties and stopping you being able to live your life the way you want to. It can be a frightening process when you decide to reach out for help to look at issues that are causing emotional distress. Counselling is an approach to help you gain an understanding of the issues affecting you and work towards making positive changes in your life. You have taken the first step in seeking help simply by searching for a counsellor.

I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings such as Colleges, Schools, Bereavement services and Rape Crisis supporting adults and children through the criminal justice process.

I am currently working with  all blue lights services including Police,  Ambulance services, Home office, Government, NHS and many more organisations. as an EAP Counsellor. 

 I am happy to offer an initial call or email to discuss any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have experience working with all blue lights services, NHS, Government and many other organisations in the public sector.

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.

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.
