About me

I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This provides reassurance for you, the client, that I practice within an ethical framework, maintaining professional standards and confidentiality. I have worked with clients from various backgrounds and cultures; ages have varied from twenty years to mid-eighties. Each person’s counselling journey is different. We are all unique, with different backgrounds, needs and life experiences which affect us in a variety of ways. Counselling journeys for some may be short-term, where people want to discuss a current situation, perhaps relating to their job, a relationship or a health issue. Others have a longer counselling journey, taking time to explore issues such as anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement. Whatever your needs, I will listen and work with you to help you to grow towards a better understanding of yourself. Increasing in self-awareness, realising why we feel or react the way that we do, can empower us and can lead to lasting change.

My focus in counselling is upon you, the client. You are the most important part of this process. My main approach is person-centred. I seek to build a therapeutic relationship with you, one where you can feel safe and where you are able to share your situation, concerns and feelings with someone who will listen, and not judge.

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.

Further information

My main approach within counselling is person-centred, focusing upon you, the client. I have found that as a counselling relationship develops, it is often beneficial to integrate techniques from other counselling disciplines such as sand tray therapy, internal family systems, using illustrations, figures and other creative techniques. 

Sessions can be face to face, online or via telephone. I currently work from 2 different premises, one of which is accessible for wheelchair users and those with mobility problems, whilst the other is not. 

My aim is to create a safe space for you to share your story,  in a non-judgemental environment and work with you to help address the problems or issues that are troubling you.
