About me

I am a BACP registered, experienced counsellor & psychotherapist. I offer a professional and confidential space specialising in working with people suffering from a wide range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, family and relationship problems, trauma, low self esteem, abuse and work related issues.

I offer both face to face short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy dependent on need, and I can also provide telephone/Zoom/Skype counselling if required.

We would meet for an initial consultation assessment to discuss what you would be looking for and allow time to explore if the counselling I am able to offer would be useful to you. If it feels right for you then we would arrange a suitable time to proceed. The counselling I offer is on a weekly basis, at the same place and time and sessions are 50 minutes long.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
