During everyone’s life there are times when we feel overwhelmed and less able to cope with problems or events going on around us, resulting in a variety of feelings, anxiety, depression, loss or stress.
Therapy can help. Talking about how you are feeling, what challenges you are facing, really being heard and having the time to explore these emotions enables you to recognise where they come from, in turn this can lead to understanding and change.
I am a counsellor who uses a variety of approaches to provide support and security in a non-judgemental, confidential and safe environment.
Usually I would welcome you to my quiet, private space, face to face to explore and support you though your session, due to the COVID-19 pandemic this is currently unavailable, however, I can still offer telephone and online sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and an accredited bereavement counsellor. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, in a school working with children from the age of 5+, for an agency specialising in bereavement and in private practice.
I have professional liability insurance and an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate.
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).
