About me

I am an experienced senior BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist & supervisor, providing long term and short term at my practice.

Corona Virus.

To keep everyone safe and to avoid risk to you I am offering online and telephone sessions.

I am able to offer flexible sessions times to Front line workers, those self isolating and/or working form home.

Senior citizens are welcome to contact me for support during this time of lock down and loneliness unable to see friends, family, and attend their normal social activities that are currently all suspended.

Fee flexibility is possible for those experiencing financial strain at this time.

Our first steps for help are often the hardest but counselling can help with difficulties and emotional stress caused by loss, relationship breakdown, work worries and painful life events. Talking with a counsellor can help you to understand how past experiences, and worry about the future or lack of confidence may be affecting your life today. A professional counsellor can help you to reflect on how you are responding to your life events, and help you to explore how you relate more effectively to others and yourself. Counselling provides a unique professional relationship to explore your thoughts and feelings, aiming to help you make your own choices and bring about change.

I  provide an EAP Counselling counselling for companies staff/employees.

Supervision available for student counsellors.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

The Reformed family.

Step families have become the fastest growing trend in family development over the last few years. Being a member of a step family can be a challenging, lonely, over crowded, and in some cases a stressful experience.I have attended training work shops at The Tavistock Centre for Family Relationships and have considerable experience in working with clients affected by bereavement divorce/separation and the reformed step-family.
