How often do we get really listened to? It can take courage to say what we need especially when we may not know what our needs are. I am an experienced counsellor and aim to provide an accepting, supportive, confidential and safe space to enable discussion about any issues that are causing concern. I am very experienced in working with anxiety and depression.
I work both short term and long term depending on the needs of my client and I value and respect our counselling relationship, which is so important in the success of therapy. I am flexible in the way I shape and tailor the sessions around each client's needs as much as possible, as everybody is an individual.
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and a qualified supervisor. I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics. I have also had over 10 years of experience working in NHS settings.
Do email or phone and leave me a message if I am not able to answer straight away and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
