I am an experienced and professionally qualified counsellor, supervisor and counselling tutor.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy which means I work within an ethical framework.
I work with adults, young people and couples, as well as working jointly with parents and their children to assist in communication.
I offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore what has been troubling you without fear of judgement or criticism. I have been trained in a broad variety of approaches to counselling and would draw on the strategies that I consider most suited to your needs.
Understanding what lies behind overwhelming thoughts and feelings can be helpful in strengthening self awareness and enabling change to take place.
Depending on what is right for each individual client I work long or short term.
I am a Programme Manager/ Lecturer of Counselling students and so would welcome students on their exciting journey of self discovery.
Appointments are available during the daytime, evening or at weekends.
In these busy times I will do my best to accommodate you.

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.
