About me

I am a friendly, gentle and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationships.  I  also have a particular interest in counselling people, or carers of people, with a Stroke. 

Sometimes we don't know why we feel the way we do and talking to a Counsellor can help you to explore these feelings and work out a way through even when things may appear hopeless.

I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and friendly face to face environment using a variety of therapies including Person-Centred, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and sand trays.

In addition if your condition prevents you from travelling I offer home visits.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor who works to the high standards and ethical framework of the BACP.  I began counselling in 2001 when I got my certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling.

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling Skills
  • Individual member of BACP
  • Enhanced DBS Certificate

To make sure that I'm totally up to date with the developments in counselling I attend many courses and conferences each year.

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.
