About me

I am a trained and qualified counsellor practising since 2011. As a registered member of both the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) and of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I work according to their ethical frameworks.

I believe that everyone has an inherent capacity to draw on their own strength to find their own way therefore everyone should have access to counselling that suits their needs and circumstances. Your personal background, gender, sexuality, race, disability or location should not be an obstacle to finding help.

I am committed to building a meaningful therapeutic relationship with you. I offer a safe, compassionate and confidential space. Here you will be heard, accepted and supported to explore your difficulties and develop lasting abilities to manage differently. This process will be unique to you as I listen carefully and intentionally so that I can adapt my therapeutic approach to meet your needs and requirements.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extended leadership and managerial experience in a variety of customer focused environments such as Social Care, training and Development, Debt Management and Family Enabling and Support.

My training and qualifications;

  • Certificate in Education (Further Education).
  • Advanced Diploma in Counselling.
  • Certificates in Counselling Skills and Therapeutic Counselling.
  • Introductory Transactional Analysis.
  • BS (Hons) Degree.
  • Edexcel Level 4 NVQ in Leadership and Management.
  • TAQA Assessor Award.

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.

Association for Christian Counsellors (ACC)

The Association of Christian Counsellors and Linked Professions is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK. The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

I offer telephone and online counselling for clients who are house bound.
