Welcome to my page.
There are times in our lives when we experience distressing events, this can sometimes make us feel anxious, depressed, or confused. I will do my best to help you make sense of your feelings. I can offer an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and worries at your own pace in a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental way. It will enable you to gain a better understanding of yourself and find that solution.
I am a person-centered / integrative counsellor, which means I can apply the best therapeutic approach that may suit your particular need.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I am available weekdays, evenings
Once I hear from you, we can have an informal conversation about what you would like to bring to counselling, together we can explore the best way forward for you. This will be in the strictest confidence. This session will last for 30 mins, and there is no charge for the initial assessment.
There is no obligation for you to continue after the initial session, if however, you wish to continue, we can arrange weekly sessions, these will last for 50 mins. There is no limit on the number of sessions, how long you choose to stay is up to you. It is always your choice.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all counselling sessions will take place via video call or telephone, whichever one you prefer.
