About me

The first and most important element of my work is my relationship with you. To ensure you feel safe and supported and not judged to enable you to look at the areas of your life that are causing you anxiety, confusion, pain, or distress. We will discuss how you prefer to work and I will endeavour to adapt my practice to you. 

You can expect a warm welcome from me and an openness to your needs. My goal is to help you find your answers and your way forward. Helping to enable choice within your life. 

Whatever it is you are facing I can offer professional emotional support and help you through difficult times.

Give me a call or drop me an email and we can have an informal chat

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a Counsellor at The University of Derby, which specialises in psychodynamic counselling. In addition to this I work using both Person Centred and CBT theories within my work. Giving me the adaptability to work with many different clients to suit your needs. 

I have been a lecturer at both Buxton University and Warrington College teaching counseling for over 12 years. I have now stepped away from teaching to focus on my client's work. 

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.

Accredited register membership
