At times you may feel alone and have difficulty coping – at these times counselling can be helpful. Counselling can provide an opportunity to focus on a specific issue or on a decision or crisis point in your life. It is important to be connected to others, especially at times of anxiety and isolation.
I can support you by offering a safe and accepting space for you to work through difficult or challenging relationships and life experiences. Talking things through in confidence with my support as a professional, open-minded and non-judgemental Accredited Counsellor can help you make sense of what is happening and how you are feeling. Within this safe and supportive relationship, the gentle process of change through therapy can take place.
Certain counselling styles suit some people differently to others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support to meet your individual needs. I use Psychodynamic, Gestalt, CBT, Person-centred, transpersonal and creative therapies. Exploring your subjective experience and unique perspective lies at the heart of my practice.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a Registered Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework guidelines.
In my private practice I work with a range of issues including anxiety, general anxiety disorder, phobias, panic disorder, depression, family issues, affairs/betrayals, separation/divorce, abuse, bereavment, trauma, sexual abuse, loss, low confidence or self-esteem, suicidal ideation/attempt and ill-health. I have specialised as a psycho-oncologist in the NHS with people living with cancer whether as a patient, carer, friend or relative. I offer emotional and psychological support before, during and after treatment or through terminal stages/bereavement.
I have extensive additional Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training, most recently Trauma and PTSD-focussed CBT with the British Psychological Society (November 2019). In January 2020 I begin training as a Counselling Supervisor.
The number of sessions you have depends on what we agree together. Regular reviews will help you decide if you need short-term support or prefer to continue for a longer period - the number of sessions will vary according to your needs. I am here to support you for as long as you feel it is helpful.
Please call me on 07855 033993 to discuss your needs and/or make an appointment. Alternatively, please email me at email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you.

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.
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.
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).
