I have worked privately with clients for over twenty years since qualifying with Humberside University in 1997 with a diverse range of issues such as:

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.

Further information

Offering appointments which also include telephone and/or video link.

I offer a non-judgemental counselling  service which is confidential and impartial.  You are an individual and I will work with you as a valued person, which I feel is very important.  I will work at your pace with an understanding that this is your time with your choices.

I regularly update my practice and take part in personal professional development training which is an important and ongoing process.

I feel very much for the individual and I have grown from humble beginnings in my locality which keeps me firmly in-touch with my roots.  My practice is without complications and I attempt to portray that genuineness within my counselling work.
