About me

Hello, I’m Heather and I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapist (BACP).

After 7 years of training, and over 3 years of working with clients within the NHS and the NSPCC, during the pandemic I opened my own private practice, “Compassionate Counselling UK”.

If you have noticed that you have been feeling more anxious or overwhelmed lately, if you have been feeling down or if you feel that you need a safe place to talk where someone will listen without judgement and support you through a difficult time; then it sounds like counselling might be for you.

How I work
I work in a Person-Centred way, which means that our sessions would be centred around you and what you would like to work on. I work in a compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental way. My main focus is to make sure that you feel part of a safe, supportive and trustworthy working relationship where you feel heard and understood.

I currently offer telephone counselling or online counselling, with each session lasting for 50 minutes. I am available to work with anyone over the age of 18, living in the UK.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a free consultation, please contact me by email or telephone.

Member organisations


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.
