If you are looking at my profile then you may be anxious, stressed, worried, feeling down, overthinking, experiencing panic or all of this and totally overwhelmed and not sure which way to turn . You may be a couple having relationship difficulties and not able to communicate with each other without it becoming an argument? When life gets confusing, we sometimes need someone to listen to us and more importantly, hear us; to help us to see things from a different perspective. I can offer you an non judgemental opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings, in a confidential setting, recognising the uniqueness of your individual values, belief system and cultural background.
My extensive experience includes working as an NHS counsellor, managing a counselling service and working as a Senior Psychothrapist with young mums (mums-aid.org). I have also worked for various local counselling charities, providing counselling for depression & anxiety, panic attacks, relationships difficulties, bereavement, trauma, sexual abuse and phobias.
As an integrative counsellor, it has also proved useful for clients to challenge negative thinking and to take control of their lives using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which is a way of seeing things from a positive perspective in order to make changes and move forward. I can support you to overcome negative blocks and gain fresh perspective to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.
I am an Accredited and Registered member of the BACP (The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work in accordance with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I am also a counselling Supervisor.
I am a registered provider of counselling and psychotherapy for Healthcare Insurance companies.

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 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.
