People seek counselling for many varied reasons - anxiety and depression being the most common. Some want to improve their emotional well-being, change behaviours, explore personal relationship difficulties, adjust their work/life balance, or manage damaging personality traits like anger or excessive emotional reactions.
My role is to offer an empathetic, understanding environment with you at the centre, to understand your feelings and emotions, help build your resources and guide you to greater sense of wellbeing.
As an integrative therapist I draw upon several therapeutic models – Person Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis – which allows me to adapt to meet the individual needs of my clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
After varied careers in the emergency services, business consultancy, broadcast media and training, I decided to pursue a long burning desire to use my life experiences to support those in emotional distress find a more peaceful and fulfilling life.

Member British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (MBACP)
Member of Lapidus International (the Writing for Wellbeing Association)
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.

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).
