After teaching for many years I decided to train as a counsellor. My own very positive experience of being counselled made me realise that I wanted to offer the same opportunity to others. I soon realised that the person - centred approach was the right fit for me. I had very much appreciated my own counsellor's empathy as they tried to "walk in my shoes". Their willingness to see things from my perspective was very helpful and I felt heard and understood. As they genuinely responded to whatever I was saying or expressing I was able to make good use of the sessions. I also very much appreciated their ability to be non judgmental. Maybe an initial appointment with me will enable you to decide whether I am someone that you would like to work with.
During this difficult time I am offering 60 minute appointments using Zoom.

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.

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).
