About me

I have been a member of the BACP for twenty years. I was awarded the MBE in the 2016 New Years Honours List for "Psychological Support Services for Young People, Lancashire.For Services to Special Educational Needs. Prior to working as a Counsellor, I taught children with emotional and behavioural problems. I have, also experience as a Counselling Lecturer having worked at the University of Cumbria in addition to various FE Colleges .Whilst at the University of Cumbria I was given the opportunity to manage the Student Counselling Service as Head of Service.

My time in Counselling has also seen me work as a Supervisor and Exam Board Moderator.

I have worked in the Charity Sector with both RELATE and CRUSE bereavement care. Whilst with CRUSE I was part of the team that designed the training programme for Counsellors working with children and young people. I am a Senior Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine
My present posts involve me working in a number of schools with young people with a variety of difficulties. I set up my own Company called INSIGHT with the motto 'Working today for a better tomorrow' this sums up my attitude to the therapy I offer. I have experience of working across the age range, both with young people and adults. Please contact me if you have any questions and I will endeavour to answer them. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile , and always remember that it’s important for YOU to find the 'right' therapist for YOUR needs!

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
