About me

Taking the brave first step into seeking help through counselling can feel so difficult and yet it could potentially be life changing. I understand how that feels and hope that my natural warm persona and training in person centred counselling could enable you to begin that process. I ensure a safe and welcoming environment for you to begin to experience care, empathy and deep understanding as well as patience and calmness as you build trust.

Working from home as a private counsellor and having been employed by a local school provides a perfect balance of experience and skills to offer. For a number of years I have volunteered as a counsellor at a local GP Practice and there too I have helped people with varying issues, some health related but not exclusively concerning those needs.

I have the ability and privilege to work with people of all ages, and the collaborative way of working and most certainly non-judgemental, will allow you to work at your own pace as you take the lead in your counselling process.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified as a person centered counsellor and have practiced for several years helping a great number of people

In addition I hold qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I maintain regular continued professional development, always thirsty for knowledge and expertise that can be used an adapted to benefit others. It’s part of the on going counselling process, which for me is a journey not a destination.

My roots are in Education and up until recently, I have been employed by the local authority for over thirty years.

Volunteer work in the NHS as well as the local community helping an established and well serving charity enables me to be amongst some of the most diverse and enlightening characters in our society. It also allows me to be ever mindful about safeguarding and autonomy, something I hold dear to and adhere to strongly within my practice.

I welcome all enquiries and relish the opportunity of offering help should you need.

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.
