About me


I have been an Integrative Counsellor and E.M.D.R. Therapist for a number of years and my training means that I can use which ever style of counselling that suits the presenting issue, but you lead on your journey, as you are the most important person in the room. 

I trained in E.M.D.R. (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) which is used for trauma, (from the client's perspective), for example, complicated grief, P.T.S.D.,  depression, etc., and many clients have found this beneficial.  Sometimes the trauma can be resolved quite quickly, sometimes it takes a little longer, it depends on what the trauma is.   

The space that therapy offers is a time for you to reflect and sort things out whilst you are supported. I will listen, clarify and probably challenge your thought process so that you can be you again.  We all get times in our lives where it gets tough, and it can feel like no one can understand or has the time to listen - I will.

During the first session,  I take notes, to open up a filing cabinet in my mind and the session moves on from there.  Each session lasts for fifty minutes and is private and confidential.  My clients have said that they find me easy to talk to, the environment safe enough to experience all their emotions and come through the tunnel to the other side.

Daytime and evenings appointments are available, please email or call me for further details, take that first step.

Entering into the counselling relationship can feel daunting, but take the step - until you do, you will never know how much you have to gain!

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
