Thank you for visiting my profile. I provide therapy for individuals and couples in a private and confidential setting in which we can explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that suits you. In doing so we can work toward positive change.
For couples, I offer face to face counselling only. For individuals I offer both face to face and video call counselling which may be useful for those unable to attend physically.
During the first session, we will discuss the issues that have led you to counselling and also discuss your expectations of the process (I will take some notes during this session). I will explain the process and how I work and based upon this session, you can decide if you feel comfortable to move forward, as I feel the relationship between client(s) and counsellor is key to building an environment of trust in which we can hopefully explore the things that you are finding difficult.

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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have much experience and interest in working with Narcissistic Personality Disorders as well as Codependency issues.
Individuals £45.00 per Session.
Couples £65.00 per Session.
I have a vast experience in working with clients from differing backgrounds and cultures, presenting with a wide array of issues. As well as having volunteered within a charity setting, I have also been an honorary psychotherapist within the NHS in Essex.
I believe counselling is an effective way to make positive changes, an environment in which you are respected and not judged.
As a firm believer of the above, I also teach adults themselves wishing to be counsellors from certificate level up to the final clinical year.
