About me

Hi, 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).

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)

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.
