Hello, thank you for viewing my profile. I am a BACP registered counsellor with many years experience working in mental health supporting people through depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse, loss amongst many other issues. Providing a safe place to explore worries and concerns in a confidential, welcoming setting you can feel at ease to make sense of whatever is holding you back. Each person's journey differs so I aim to explore it with you, adapting my skills to fit your needs. I believe each of us has the ability to enhance our lives, sometimes we just need a little help along the way.
Taking that first step to meet a counsellor requires courage; I understand this and aim to make it as easy as possible.
I would like to invite you to contact me for an informal chat where you can decide if I'm the right fit for you. Counselling is a personal, collaborative experience so it's important to feel comfortable with your chosen therapist. If your situation does not fit into the categories listed above please do not let that deter you. My door is always open and I look forward to working with 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.

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).
