About me

I am based in Heysham where I offer counselling to people willing to travel from any of the surrounding areas. I also offer online and telephone counselling throughout the UK.

Sessions will usually begin with one hour per week, but this is flexible to meet your needs.

Please contact me and If you leave a message I will get back to you to arrange an initial meeting.

I offer a caring, non-judgmental and safe relationship where you can explore your feelings. Once you are able to voice your inner troubles, you can begin to find clarity, peace and the ability to move forward in a positive direction.

There are many reasons people give for coming to counselling such as depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship struggles, bereavement, need for support with life’s challenges, unwanted overwhelming feelings,  loneliness, help with accepting a major life change.

When two individuals make contact for the purpose of counselling, this is the place when change occurs. Insight and contentment can begin to take shape for you. I can provide a counselling relationship which will allow you to feel safe enough to explore your challenges and problems.

I have worked with individuals who have asked for help with addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bereavement, relationship problems; as well as those who feel there is a lack or void in their everyday life which they wish to understand and fill.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have a Certificate in Supervision and an Advanced Certificate in Supervision. I am qualified in online and telephone counselling.

I am a registered senior Accredited member of BACP.

In addition to my private practice I work for a local charity as a counselling supervisor.

I also have previous extensive qualifications and experience working with individuals in education, advice, management and support services.

My work is guided by the BACP code of ethics.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Further information

In addition to in person meetings, I offer telephone and online counselling. This method of working is as effective and supportive as meeting face to face.

I believe that it is the therapeutic relationship itself which will bring about change.  This change appears to be deep and lasting as opposed to surface change.

My strongest belief is of the person as a motivated, creative and constructive being who will find a way to develop and be fulfilled.   When I look at this statement I can see it may appear overly optimistic and naive, but I arrive at it over a long period of time, through my observation of others as well as my own personal experience.
