About me

As a qualified practitioner with 23 years experience, I provide a confidential and professional counselling service for individuals and couples and counsellors in training. As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to the standards of the Ethical Framework.

I provide counselling using an Integrative approach which is the appropriate use of different theories depending on the needs of the client.
Counselling enables the client to  identify, acknowledge, explore their problems/circumstances, and to be supported in deciding what is their best way forward.

I offer clinical supervision to qualified practitioners and counsellors in training.

Flexible appointment times are available.

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.

Further information

The option of counselling and psychotherapy can assist people to manage difficult circumstances, relationships, life events (expected and unexpected) and crisis. It takes courage to come forward to ask a stranger for help and it also indicates a healthy attitude as the person seeking counselling is seeking to resolve their difficulty.

The opportunity to talk to a counsellor without being judged can support those who attend the service to recognise their own strengths, promote their personal development, improve their emotional well being and to develop more satisfactory ways of relating with others.

The very nature of counselling is an exploration of personal issues and a client has the right to expect that what they say during their sessions is maintained confidentially and in accordance with ethical standards and legal limits.
