Hello, I am currently working from home due to Covid 19 and can offer online or telephone sessions. I am a Person Centred Counsellor and this means that I am like a passenger in the car that you are driving. You will take me with you on this drive and together we can reach a destination. I work with people who are suffering with depression, anxiety, trauma and sexual violence.
We will work together and talk about things that may be distressing for you.
I offer a safe and confidential environment that we can explore the distress you are experiencing.
Sessions are an hour weekly at a time that is safe and convenient to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in Person Centred Therapy at Bangor University and have been qualified for 6 years.
I am a member of the BACP.
I attend various training courses to learn more about issues effecting clients so I can gain an insight.
I have worked within sexual violence for the past six years and over the last 2 years have worked with other forms of trauma, anxiety and depression, PTSD, bereavement and relationship difficulties.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I am available on Wednesdays and Fridays daytime and can also offer appointments in the evening.
