I have 25 years experience in relationship counselling with couples, individuals, young people and families. I am a qualified psychosexual therapist and I am trained to work with compulsive sexual behaviour. I work with the traumas that are often the cause of some of the symptoms displayed in adult behaviour.
I offer a complete service in relationship counselling. I am an accredited member of the BACP and I abide by its ethical guidelines.
I see clients in a private location which is safe and secure. I also offer supervision.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am Relate trained with a certificate in Marital and Couple Counselling and I have a Diploma in Psycho Sexual Therapy. I have additional training/qualifications for working with young people/children and families and I am trained to work with compulsive sexual behaviour.
I have trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) which enables me to work directly with client trauma.
I also have a certificate in supervision from Relate.
I have been counselling for over 25 years and I have had a private practice for 18 years.
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 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.

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).
