About me

I am qualified as a humanistic counsellor based on the model of Transactional Analysis and I now incorporate other models within my work.

I believe that a good relationship between client and counsellor promotes successful therapy.

I have helped clients with a wide range of problems and what I have learnt is that no two experiences are ever the same. What is important is the individual’s experience and working with that.

Clients say it’s a relief to be able to have objectivity and a space for them. Therapy provides a place for you away from the business of life
and its many demands.

Counselling can also provide valuable support when there is a crisis and there doesn’t seem to be a way forward.

  • (NCP Accredited) Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision - May 2021

Member organisations


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.
