About me

If you talk about something it gets it out and like a wound, once you start getting the oxygen on it, it starts to heal (Stephen Fry)

Coming to counselling can feel a little daunting; sharing some of our private thoughts and feelings with someone that we do not know can be hard and can feel a little strange. I will help to make you feel comfortable and at ease by offering you a safe, confidential space for you to talk openly, and at a pace that suits you. I am committed to ensuring that you will feel heard, accepted and understood and I will make every effort to appreciate what it is like to be you and to help you understand your feelings and emotions.

I specialise in the following areas although I recognise that each of us is unique and life's challenges and difficulties cannot always be easily described or categorised:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety/Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Trauma
  • Couples counselling
  • Abuse
  • Low self-esteem
  • Bipolar
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Sexuality
  • General counselling

I am able to offer daytime, evening and a limited number of weekend appointments. If you would like to arrange an initial assessment with me I can be contacted in the following ways:-

Member organisations

BACP

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.
