About me

Who and what is counselling for?

Counselling is for anybody of any age who needs support at any time of their lives. It can help you to gain self awareness and develop new insights and strategies for living. If you are finding life difficult whether it is relationships at home or at work, if you are feeling anxious or sad or if you do not know which way to turn, I might be able to help you.

I am a person centred therapist with many years of experience working privately and as a volunteer at Cruse Bereavement Care. I also work as a Supervisor both at Cruse and privately.

I can offer you a safe and confidential place where you can talk through whatever is troubling you. It could be short term (just a few sessions) or long term, face to face or on Zoom.

The therapy relationship is so important and I always offer an initial meeting so you are able to get an idea as to whether I might be the right therapist for you.

Please get in touch if you feel I can be of help.

  • 1 to 1 general counselling

Member organisations

BACP

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.
