Talking about your problems can be difficult, even with people who love and care about you. Sometimes you don't know where to turn. I am here to offer you support, and to respond to you sensitively, honestly and without judgement.
I'm totally committed to offering you a space where I listen carefully to the things that have brought you to counselling and do my best to really understand what's going on for you and what your feelings are. It's very important to me that I offer a warm, welcoming, friendly atmosphere to explore , in your own time, the problems that are troubling you.
I am an experienced and professional therapist, working for 23 years as a counsellor in the N.H.S , online and privately. My career in therapy stemmed from my work in nursing the terminally ill and working with bereaved families.
Since qualifying, I have worked extensively with emotional and relationship problems, including childhood abuse, self esteem and confidence issues.
I have also have 18 years experience, counselling young people between the ages of 11-25, in schools, privately and on line.
I use an Integrative approach in my therapy. This means that I have training in a range of different approaches which form my 'tool kit'. I will help you to find the right way forward for yourself. In particular, I use Transactional Analysis and integrate mindfulness and emotional regulation (D.B.T. skills) into my practice.
I am a registered M.B.A.C.P (accred)

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).
