About me

Life today is complex, hectic and riddled with uncertainty with most of us having to face significant pressures in our daily lives and with "change" being a constant part of life. When we reach crisis point, for whatever reason, whether it is the cumulative effects of many things or a major crisis, where do we turn?

"Most of the time, we find ways of dealing with such problems in living by talking to family, friends, neighbors, priests or our family doctor. But occasionally their advice is not sufficient, or we are too embarrassed or ashamed to tell them what is bothering us, or we just don't have an appropriate person to turn to." Quote By John McLeod

I offer over 40 years of experience in counselling and psychotherapy treatment and training. Counselling individuals, couples, families and groups using a safe yet dynamic, integrative approach to those who may feel they are treading water or finding it difficult to cope.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
