About me

I’m an Integrative Counsellor, using various therapies tailored to suit  your specific needs; including Person Centred, Emotionally Focused, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

I offer both 1-1 counselling and relationship counselling for adults from 18 years and above.  I am available for face to face, on line and  telephone counselling, depending on availability.

Life can be complex and bring different challenges which can affect many areas of our lives.

I am extremely passionate in helping you to deal with these challenges in order that you can lead a happier, more enjoyable life.

Thoughts and feelings have a real affect on ourselves, our behaviour and how we react and cope in all areas of our lives. I feel it is important to work through any challenges / issues so we can move on and be happy both within ourselves and within our relationships.

I feel that being genuine, open and honest and building a professional relationship of trust with clients is key to successful outcomes for clients.
I am a very dedicated, genuine, professional who focuses on getting the best possible result for all clients.
Looking  specifically at ways to work through things with you is something I work hard to achieve with yourself. This way the counselling sessions are realistically going to be more beneficial to yourself.

I realise that you have different priorities at different times so I try to work as flexibly as possible.

I work with a wide range of issues including:

  • Abuse
  • Addictive issues
  • Alcohol /Substance abuse issues
  • Life Coaching
  • Anger management                                                  
  • OCD
  • Anxiety                                                 
  • Self-esteem /Confidence issues
  • Bullying                                                
  • Self-harm
  • Depression
  • Stress management

Member organisations

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.
