I offer private long-and short term individual counselling for adults in a safe, calm and nurturing environment. Alongside my professional training and experience, my own journey through life's dark places leads me to be able to offer to be with you and work alongside you, wherever you are on your journey, however dark it might seem. I work with general issues that might lead you seek help and have a special interest in addictive disorders, trauma and co-dependency. However, beneath it all lies a person, and I seek to see and hear and work with the person that you are, regardless of the name or label that you, or I, or the world might give 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.
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
Even thinking about counselling can seem overwhelming and so I offer an informal 30 minute introductory session free of charge. Thereafter, sessions cost £45. I also offer discretionary flexibility in cases where clients are in genuine financial hardship and in receipt of benefit. Fees can be paid individually or in blocks.
