About me

Taking that first step to seek counselling is an important one and can be daunting. I offer face to face and online appointments for both counselling and supervision. 

​Where do you start?

I could throw in lots of theoretical jargon and qualifications here, but that might not mean very much to you.

So how do you choose your Counsellor? 

Of course you want your Counsellor to have undergone reputable training and to be qualified but you also need to feel that this is someone you can trust and feel safe with. Counselling is different things to different people. Sometimes it is a space to offload, sometimes it may be a place where you can explore and make sense of things that have happened, and sometimes it may be where your long-held beliefs might need to be challenged. 

Friends and family may be supportive, but they will often have an unconscious bias and want to ‘fix’ things. The counselling relationship is unique. As your Counsellor I do not have an agenda and will support you through rocky times as you navigate your way to a deeper understanding of yourself and your experiences. Understanding the past and present so that you do not carry your problems into the future.

Working collaboratively with my clients, I treat everyone with respect, warmth and honesty, that I believe we are all entitled to.

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

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.
