Life can present us with challenges and issues that can be overwhelming and painful. Sometimes there are clear triggers for the way we feel and on other occasions we may not be aware of why we are feeling annoyed, irritated or behaving in a certain way.
Talking with a counsellor can help you understand difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress, it allows you the space to explore issues, helps promote self discovery, increased awareness and a deepened connection with oneself.
I offer a safe therapeutic space which is non-judgemental and where confidentiality is paramount. The approach I use is non-directive and is client led, which means I will work at a pace that suits you, allowing you to explore your own thoughts and feelings, and on your journey I will walk along side you helping you to recognise that you are the expert and only you know what is best for you.
I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work within their Ethical Framework for good practice and adhere to their guidelines.
I provide short term and long term counselling.
My background - I was previously based in a G.P surgery.
I have regular supervision and undertake CPD training.
I am currently delivering my counselling service by zoom due to current circumstances. Zoom is a way for you to see your counsellor face to face without leaving home durng these unprecendented times.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
