How Counselling Can Help
If you are looking for a counsellor I am sure you want to make your life better - whether by dealing with the impact of external issues or by understanding and managing your internal world of thoughts and feelings.
I believe that clients come to therapy in search of the changes they desire in their lives, whether its dealing with the past, overcoming obstacles in the present, or struggling with other issues. The decision the client makes to do this, opens up for them the opportunity to move forward in a purposeful way. I want positive, understanding and empathic therapy to help clients to achieve their goals.
I originally came from the South of England, and spent most of my childhood in London. I went to university in Leicester where I read Combined Arts, and In my younger life pursued a variety of different jobs. I have also travelled quite a bit, and I lived in Canada for a year.
In my time have encountered both feast and famine, happiness and loss, health issues and many other events, as we all do in life, which has all helped me to identify with the different experiences of my clients.
I met my husband, a northerner, and made my life in the North, where I have happily grown my family and most importantly, found my calling in counselling.
Working from Green View Therapy. I offer clients a safe, confidential environment in which to explore a variety of personal issues with empathy and purpose. I am a fully trained professional with nearly 20 years experience, and a diversity of therapeutic approaches to offer.
Please feel free to call me, and if I am unable to take the call I will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. All calls will be treated with strictest confidentiality.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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).
