About me

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor Accredited with the National Counselling Society NCS (Accred) and registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP)

I have many years experience working within the NHS, Council and private sector. My empathic and warm approach creates a positive therapeutic space to enable clients to explore their difficulties in a non-judgemental and accepting environment.

I assist clients with issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, anger, sleep issues, relationship issues, bereavement, addiction and abuse, empowering them to find solutions to their problems and ensuring they gain the maximum benefit from our sessions.

With my knowledge and experience of working as a Counsellor and a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, I am able to be flexible in my approach, offering low intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions as well as counselling. I am experienced in working with interpreters and can also offer group sessions as well as working with clients on a one to one basis.

I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. There is free parking in the side street next to the agency.

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.
