About me

I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). By offering an integrative approach to counselling I will tailor your therapy experience to your emotional needs and concerns rather than trying to fit you into a particular type of therapy.

In my practice I work with people who are experiencing a variety of issues such as anxiety and depression, bereavement, relationship and health related concerns. My aim is to always take into account my client’s needs and wishes in order to create and maintain a meaningful and trusting relationship. In our work I will listen with empathy, understanding and without judgement. My clients explore their feelings and issues in a safe and supportive environment to reach a positive resolution.

I have successfully provided counselling to clients in the NHS and in the community sector and have specific experience of working with adults (16+) who have experienced  loss of employment, alcohol and drug dependency, men and women who have suffered historic abuse and people experiencing suicidal thoughts.

During our initial consultation, either face-to-face or by telephone, you will have time to speak about your concerns, ask questions and discuss your expectations and specific needs.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
