About me

Deciding to ask for counselling can be the beginning of moving forward with issues and to making some changes at a time when you are struggling.

Person centred counselling starts from a position of believing that you, the client, are the expert in your life - giving you the opportunity to openly share and explore your issues in depth, while being listened to in a caring non-judgemental way.

Where appropriate I draw upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T) which can be very helpful for working with repetitive thought and behaviour patterns as with anxiety, stress and depression. I work with you the client to find different ways of coping with stress and relieving high levels of anxiety and depression enabling a more fulfilling life.

Talking through issues can lead to a greater understanding and insight into your situation which in turn can lead to resolving difficult feelings and issues. It is always inspiring to see clients moving forward with positivity in their lives.

I work with adults and young adults with short, medium and long term counselling and offer face to face as well as telephone and online sessions. My experience with each of these methods of counselling is extensive as I have clients from all over the country and internationally.

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.
