I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with individuals once a week on a one-to-one basis.
Each weekly session lasts for 50 minutes, at the same time, in the same place. This will be your space for as long as you wish to continue, I am happy to do both long term or short term work.
Our first meeting will be a consultation and will take up to 50 minutes and we will use this session to see how we feel about working together and so I can gain an understanding about what is happening in your life and what your goals for counselling are.
I use an approach which draws on many theories and concepts of counselling, so it suits you. We will be working together in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space where we will explore the presenting problems you are facing.
Whatever you are going through you don’t have to do this alone, we can work towards your goals in therapy at your own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience

I also attend (CPD) Continuing Professional Development events to maintain and enhance my clinical knowledge and skills.
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.
