About me

Thank you for reading my profile, I am an experienced, qualified and BACP Accredited Counsellor currently working with adults, children and young people. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential counselling relationship where your feelings, thoughts and emotions are at the centre of our work together.  I am qualified to degree level in Person Centred Counselling which means that I concentrate on you as an individual and your needs however I draw on my knowledge of other therapeutic approaches to best suit the needs of my clients.  Most importantly, I hope my down to earth yet professional approach will enable you to relax and to put you at ease which is particularly helpful when disclosing difficult life experiences.

I have worked for many years as a counsellor in a school setting which has given me the opportunity not only to work with young people on a wide range of issues such as anxiety, self-harm, depression, sexual health, sexuality, self-esteem, gender issues, bereavement, difficult relationships, family breakdown etc. but I also deliver play therapy sessions for primary age children as well as consultations with parents and carers.  My experience also covers group work and training on a wide range of topics.

In addition, I also set up a counselling service for homeless and hidden homeless clients;  covering all aspects of their life including issues such as suicide, depression, debt problems, divorce, loss, addiction and working towards making positive steps forward even when they believed all hope was gone.

I would be happy to talk with you about your counselling needs in further detail and I offer a free initial short consultation.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership
