About me

I am counselor/therapist registered with the BACP. I have a wealth experience working with a range of common mental health issues i.e. anxiety, depression, and identity. My experience also includes working with individuals that experience changes in the dynamics of their relationships with others (including family issues). This can be in the form of but not limited to domestic violence, bereavement, loss, betrayal, affairs, separation, abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, psychological), stress from work.

I offer a professional, non-judgmental counseling service in a warm and welcoming counseling environment. The sessions will be a safe and secure space for you to work through the issues that are affecting you and together we will find a way forward.I am an experienced trained counselor. My work is with individuals, couples, and groups.

I hold full professional and public liability insurance.  I am also DBS (CRB) enhanced checked, this can be viewed up request.

I am available to work in schools or behalf of 3rd party organizations.

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

Additional information

Not everyone who would benefit from counseling has the means to access affordable services, with this in mind I am currently offering sessions of 50 minutes on a weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis. My current fee is £45 per session (£60 for couples). I can offer concessions to students, senior citizens, people on low income/wages and to individuals who wish to engage in long term therapy

I am currently offering an initial assessment (consultation) of up to 1.5 hours (90 minutes) for £30, this to help you decide if counselling or psychotherapy is for you and whether you would like to work with me.

Further information
