Thank you for taking the time to read my page. I invite you to get in touch to arrange an initial consultation. This is where we can talk about what you would like to get from counselling and what, in particular, has led to you looking for a counsellor now. It’s also an opportunity to see how you feel being in the counselling environment and ask any questions you may have about the counselling process itself.
I can offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental space for you to talk through your experiences and work towards bringing about positive life changes.
You can contact me by phone or email. If you choose to call me and I am to unable answer, then please feel free to leave a message on my confidential answering machine, and I will return your call as soon as possible. I respond to calls and emails between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. If your contact is outside of these hours then I will get back to you the next working day.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
National Counselling Society
The National Counselling Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
