About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.  I am a fully qualified and experienced mental health counsellor/psychotherapist, specialising in bereavement counselling.  I understand that the loss of a loved one can be a challenging and painful experience and I am here to provide you with the support and guidance you need to navigate this difficult time.

In addition to my understanding of bereavement counselling, I also have experience working with a range of other mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma and relationship problems.  As an integrative counsellor, I use a range of therapeutic techniques and approaches to help my clients address their unique needs and goals.

Seeking help could be the best decision you ever made.

My approach to counselling is person-centred, compassionate and tailored to the individual needs of my clients.  I work collaboratively with my clients to create a safe and non-judgemental space where they can explore thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Whether you are struggling with the effects of bereavement or are facing other mental health issues, I am here to support you.  I offer a warm and empathic approach that is grounded in evidence-based practices.  My goal is to help you to overcome your challenges and live a more fulfilling life.

If you are ready to take the first step towards healing and recovery, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am here to help you on your journey to greater well-being and happiness.

I am an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore obliged to abide by their ethical guidelines.  I am also registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) which ensures your information is held in accordance with the Data Protection Act (2018) (GDPR, 2018).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Key details

AccessNI check

AccessNI carries out criminal records checks for individuals working in certain roles in Northern Ireland. Find out more at justice-ni.gov.uk , or contact this professional directly.

Wheelchair user access
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.
