There are times in many people's lives when it feels like you don't have the understanding or support that you need to deal with what the world has thrown at you.
Perhaps this is a time in your liife when you feel a need to reach out to someone with experience and empathy, to help and stand beside you as you explore ways in which you can make life changes, cope with or resolve your problems. If this might be you, I offer Person-Centred counselling/psychotherapy supporting adults; one to one, couples and groups. I also offer clinical supervision for counsellors; one to one and groups.
I have had 25 years in Private Practice, I have also run a variety of workshops, been an external inviglilator for counselling students in college, worked with EAP's in critical incidents, such as working with clients in the aftermath of major disasters and wrok-related traumatic events.
I have a dedicated and private room where I see my clients, as feeling safe and at ease in a quiet, comfortable environment is essential.

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.
