About me

Are you feeling sad, anxious or panicking and don't know why?

For me, counselling is vocational. I feel passionately that everyone should be able to access therapeutic services of a high standard. We work together in an open, empathic and trust building way.

I work with individuals, couples and via Skype (individual only).

You can expect to experience

  • A safe, confidential space to explore your feelings and concerns.

  • Be listened to by a trained counsellor who will offer focus, challenge and clarity.

  • Be challenged about some of the unhelpful feelings and behaviours that may be hindering your growth.

  • Encouragement to make positive choices for yourself.

Therapy can be difficult painful work and I would encourage you to stick with it, hopefully seeing yourself change and move forward means that you will want to come.

I encourage an initial telephone conversation before booking

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.

BACP

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

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).
