I am still practicing throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, through either telephone or video/online counselling as my office is in a home environment.
I am a qualified counsellor based in Blackpool offering person-centred therapy. This is a non-judgemental form of counselling in a safe environment designed to work with you, the client, to explore and resolve whatever issues you wish to bring to the session.
If you feel this may be right for you, I invite you to contact me.
I am a member of the BACP (the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ensuring that I adhere to their code of ethics, maintaining confidentiality, respect for the client and attend regular supervision.
I have experience of working with clients that require help with anxiety, depression, bereavement, PTSD, all forms of abuse, sexual and relationship difficulties.
Through both my care and counselling experience I have worked with clients who have long-term conditions, both physical, emotional and mental, including, though not limited to, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cerebral palsy, autism and downs syndrome.

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
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).
