At times, life can feel challenging or confusing. It can be a struggle to make sense of our circumstances. Relationship issues, anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement and divorce, are common problems that many of us face in our lives, which can affect our happiness and quality of life. My professional, but caring and down to earth approach aims to be supportive and sensitive whilst we work through your issues and difficulties.
My core approach to therapy is person-centred. This approach is non-directive and puts you the client at the heart of the therapeutic process and allows you to set your own pace, one that you are comfortable with. My aim will be to provide a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space where you can feel safe enough to talk about any issues or concerns, whether past or present, that may be impacting on your everyday life. In exploring parts of your life and relationships that you are not happy with, counselling, can help you in developing your own inner resources and enable you to find your own answers and solutions to your current difficulties.
I offer both short and long term counselling to Individuals and Couples and Supervision to qualified counsellors.
It is important that you find the right counsellor for you so please call me for an informal chat, or email if you prefer, if you have any questions/queries.

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
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.
