About me

Hello. Having reached my profile it is likely that you have something going on that is worrying, distressing or upsetting you. This may be interfering with you getting on with your life as fully as you would like.

You may be considering that you need help to untangle the thoughts that are going round in your head. Often people find that it is helpful to talk with someone who is not emotionally involved to the same extent as family and friends. I aim to go at whatever pace you are comfortable with, not to judge you or tell you what to do, but perhaps to offer a different perspective, and support you in coming to your own choices or resolutions.

Until such time as the Corona Virus is not a threat, I will no longer be offering to meet with you face to face for the sake of your health and mine. However, I am more than happy to offer sessions either on FaceTime, Zoom or Skype. I know that deciding to have some Counselling can be a bit daunting, so feel free to give me a ring and we can talk about how best we can proceed.

I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
