Have things you previously enjoyed lost their meaning?
Perhaps a relationship has ended or been a challenge and you don’t know how to move forward?
You could have suffered a loss, endured emotional, physical or sexual abuse or be dealing with an existential crisis or spiritual emergency?
Maybe you have been ruminating about your past, worried about your future, or have been suffering with anxiety, depression, or have anger or addiction issues?
Whatever issues your facing perhaps it’s time to try talking things through with an experienced Counsellor?
How I can help
I’m an Accredited Integrative Counsellor with lots of experience in private practice and the NHS. I offer both long-term and short-term counselling, either face to face or online.
As a therapist I will be interested to hear about your experiences, your relationships and how you view yourself and the world around you. It can be helpful to explore any recurring patterns in your life and how past experiences may be holding you back. In exploring different aspects of yourself and your life, I'll help you to gain insight and consider new perspectives to help you find a way forward.
So if you think I might be the right therapist for you then please drop me a line and we can schedule a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.

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
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).
