About me

My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment where you can explore anxiety, stress, trauma, painful experiences, loss, conflict, confusion or despair. I feel that a good relationship and humour are essential for counselling to be effective.

I Believe we are all unique individuals and as such we know our selves better than anyone else. In normal times we can manage our own lives and solve our own problems. However, there may be times when we feel stuck, in conflict, anxious, panicky, or have suffered loss. During these times it can help to explore these feelings and gain valuable insight into what is going on. This facilitates better ways of coping and finding the courage to change self destructive thinking and behaviour. I can help you to gain confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem enabling you to have a happier more fulfilling life.

As well as being a counsellor I am a mother a grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. I believe all of these relationships have helped me with my role as a counsellor.

I started my counselling career in 1986 after doing various basic counselling skills courses. I then volunteered as a listener on a children’s helpline. I have had many varied experiences since including workplace counselling and GP practices. I started my private practice, Caleidoscope Counselling Services, in 1999 and have had various contracts with large organisations as well as working with individuals.

I am a BACP ACCREDITED Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I gained a BSc (Hons) Psychology in 1996 and an MA in Counselling in 1997.

As part of my private practice I had a contract with a large industrial company (Aker Kvaerner) doing occupational counselling, i worked with people suffering from anxiety, stress, depression or burnout often leading to issues of loss of self-esteem. I also had contracts with 2 further organisations, Stapleton International and DISC where I did occupational counselling. For each of these clients I also provided workshops and seminars in occupational stress awareness, management and counselling. I have designed and taught various short courses, including: Anger management and assertiveness courses, also various workshops for stress management, bullying, self-harm, and basic counselling skills.

I have taught counselling at all levels from basic counselling skills through Diploma to MA at Durham University. I learned many great lessons at Durham especially about team work, and support. My teaching at Durham involved not only lecturing and teaching skills but also supervision and facilitating personal development groups. I also taught NCFE accredited courses Levels 2 and 3 counselling skills and counselling theory at Northallerton College. The courses that I taught and developed include skills training, lectures on different orientations such as Person Centred, creative therapies, psychodynamic, Gestalt and cognitive behavioural approaches to counselling.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
