About me

Hello,

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and have been practicing for 23 years.  I am experienced in working with women and men of many different lifestyles and cultural heritages.   I work with adults, adolescents, children, families and couples either on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

To help you decide if you would like to begin counselling with me, I offer a free initial pre-counselling meeting, with no charge or committment at this stage.

Difficulties that I have helped people with include low self confidence, anxieties and fears including panic attacks, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement and other losses, domestic violence and other forms of abuse, anger, troubling effects of past experiences, concerns relating to sex and sexuality, problems sleeping or eating and many others.

I work with people in a variety of ways depending on a person's individual needs but which are based on establishing a trusting, judgement free relationship with you which enables you to talk about and explore the things you are finding difficult.   Hopefully this will enable you to gain new insights into your life and discover a more satisfying way of living.

If you would like to speak to me or arrange an initial, pre-counselling meeting, please either ring or email me.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
