About me

Do you want to understand or change something in your life or are you struggling with something that has happened? Whatever has brought you to this point, you will get a friendly welcome in a professional and relaxing environment 

I work mainly with adults in Wilmslow face to face and online UK wide. 

My clients all have unique experiences, relationships and lives and as an integrative therapist the counselling will be specific for you. You may come to me knowing exactly what you want to work through or you may feel confused, not fully understand why you feel the way you do. Either way it's OK, I will be someone who will be there to help support you through this time and any changes you want.

Together we use the sessions at your pace to work through things, you get the time and space you need. I won't make judgements about you and your life, I will listen to what you have to say and together we will work through the things that are important.

I have years of experience working with different complexities of problems and I work with people on a long or short term basis. 

I provide a discrete professional and confidential counselling service. 

Sessions can be face to face at the Wilmslow practice, via telephone and online.

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.
