About me

I OFFER ONLINE/ZOOM AND TELEPHONE COUNSELLING AS WELL AS FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENTS

Hello and welcome to my profile page.

I am here to support you in with whatever is troubling you so well done in taking the most important first step.

I am an experienced and qualified Relationship Counsellor having trained and worked for Relate for over ten years and I can help you as a couple or as an individual to work through whatever is troubling you.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, finding it difficult to cope, in conflict with your partner or loved ones you have come to the right place. I offer a sensitive approach and a confidential space for you to talk through your issues no matter how big or small.

When relationships are not going well this often impacts on mental and physical health so restoring balance and calm to your situation can be enormously helpful to your overall wellbeing. 

The areas I typically work with include anxiety, depression/low mood, loneliness, bereavement/loss, separation,  trust/affairs, parenting, communication and conflict resolution. 

With a background in health I also retain an interest in all health related matters and specialise in pregnancy and all birth related issues including postnatal depression (for men and women).

If you choose to work with me I will go at a pace which feels right for you in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

We will work through the issues which brought you to counselling so that you can make sense of where you are and more importantly draw on your own resources to overcome whatever is holding you back. In this way you can develop your own way of coping and develop your resilience for any future challenges which may come your way.   Ultimately this can free you to live more fully and help you regain your zest for life.

I work with clients of differing gender, age, ability, sexuality and culture and I offer a non judgemental approach which I believe is fundamental to developing a trusting therapeutic relationship.

I am a member of BACP and I have full indemnity insurance.

Member organisations

BACP
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

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).
