I am an experienced Counsellor, with over 2000 hours of counselling experience, and a Registered Member of the BACP, (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). My experience is extensive, covering a wide range of situations, including issues such as:
- family relationships
- childhood trauma
- work situations
- confidence problems
- in addition to a wide range of challenges that can arise in our day-to-day lives.
It’s important that you find the right Counsellor for you, because when you do, I truly believe that great change and growth is possible.
Through a trusting, therapeutic relationship you can: gain insight and understanding into your situation; clarify your thoughts and feelings; and find a way forward with increased confidence and self-esteem.
Counselling offers you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful, or uncomfortable; And whether this is something that’s very much in the present, an on-going situation, or something that happened several years ago, the feelings around that are all equally valid.
Our first session will be a chance for us to meet, for you to let me know what’s brought you to Counselling and to discuss how we would work together. This initial session is at a reduced rate. You are welcome to have a brief chat on the phone prior to this meeting.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£45.00 per session
Concessions offered for
£45 per therapeutic hour. (My sessions are a full 60 minutes). First session £40. (This initial session is still a full hour). Your first session is a chance for us to meet, discuss your reasons for coming and what you would like to achieve from counselling. We can then talk about how we might work together. If you decide after the first session that I am not the right person to work with you, there is of course no obligation to continue.
