About me

Thank you for visiting my page. I know the idea of going to counselling comes with all sorts of reservations and worries, and yet you are visiting this page; so perhaps if you are ready, it might be the time to give it a try.

Life can be full of difficult times and sometimes we cope well, but at other times some help can make all the difference. I can offer a warm, confidential and nonjudgmental space to look at what maybe troubling you.


My job is to try and understand and explore whatever feelings you maybe having right now. That, in itself has the ability to take a great weight off. To be heard and understood is vital. It might also be important to look back into your past and understand if any aspects of it are still affecting you today. We can work towards some real positive change in whatever area is important to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

In my private practice I support clients with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, anger issues, depression, suicidal thoughts, stress, OCD, loneliness, low self-esteem, addiction, bereavement, relationship issues..... the list is endless.

Alongside my private practice I currently work for 2 local charities counselling both adults and teenagers.

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.

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.
