About me

Sometimes in life we can experience seemingly overwhelming difficulties like anxiety, depression or struggling in a relationship and don't understand why. At times like this it can be beneficial to enlist the help of a trained professional, who will listen and understand without judgement.

I can provide a safe, comfortable, private and quiet location where we can work together to help you understand your particular situation, looking perhaps at things that happened in your past that influence how you manage things in the present. Understanding these can help you manage your life more effectively now and in the future.

We can meet for either a set number of sessions (6 to 12) or for as long as required (open ended), each session lasting 50 minutes at the same time each week.

Member organisations


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.
