Choosing a Therapist
It can be a challenge trying to find a Counsellor/Psychosexual Therapist when there are so many to choose from. This may be your first step towards counselling/therapy or you may have had counselling previously.
So how can you be sure that I am the right therapist for you?
I have helped many people change their relationships and lives for the better and it has been a privilege to work with so many clients. We will be on this journey together.
My counselling/Psychosexual therapy
My own personal work has developed over the years. In addition to counselling, I have a special interest working with clients with relationship and psychosexual problems:
- Relationship issues such as partner abuse, divorce and affairs.
- Sexual compulsions
- Depression, anxiety and feelings of suicide
- Working with individuals and families affected by sexual offending/ abuse
- Gender, sexual and relationship diversities
So am I right for you?
I am happy to have a no obligation chat on the phone to discuss your situation and to discuss any reservations you might have about coming for Counselling/ Psychosexual Therapy.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
