About me

Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, having difficulties with relationships or experiencing loss, talking to someone can help you make sense of your feelings.   Together we can find a way to boost your self-confidence, empowering you to make informed choices about your path in life.  Everyone is unique. Only you as an individual can know what is right for you. The key is to unlock that knowledge and through person-centred counselling you can gain the tools you need to make positive changes in your life.

I offer a £20.00 initial assessment session which is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and see whether we feel happy to work together.  I am aware that you may be feeling a little anxious and I will do my best to reassure you and help you feel at ease.  Having had my own therapy, I have an understanding of how you may be feeling.  If you decide to begin counselling, we would normally agree to meet for 6 sessions and then look at whether you wished to continue.

Counselling sessions last for 50mins and I provide a confidential and safe environment for sessions to take place.  Everything we discuss during our sessions is confidential unless we talk about risk of serious harm to yourself or others.  In this case we would normally discuss disclosing this to someone such as a GP.  I attend regular monthly supervision in which I discuss client issues but my supervisor is unaware of my clients' identity.  Supervision is important in order to keep both myself and my clients safe and supported.

My person-centred approach means that you will always be in control of what you bring to the session.  Counselling is about exploring our feelings and trying to make sense of them, not about giving advice.  By working together we can find a way forward.

Please do contact me if you feel I can be of help.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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).
