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
  • Pet Bereavement counselling
  • Supervision

Member organisations

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.
