Asking for help is the first big step in recognising it is time for a change. I specialise in treating those difficulties that life has a habit of throwing our way: depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, break-up, bereavement, confusion, a lack of self-worth and a sense of meaninglessness. I also have an interest in addiction which I approach, as with all these hurdles, as a chance for personal growth (see my dedicated website).
I offer an understanding based on long term experience and a safe and confidential place to bring about change.
My approach is to look at what has brought you to this place, how that is affecting your life now and how to get to a better place.
Training, qualifications & experience
BA (hons), Dip Couns, MBACP
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).
