Due to the current Corvid 19 virus pandemic, I am now offering an online counselling and supervision service as well as Face to Face work when it resumes. I am happy to organise social distancing therapy outdoors in a private location on request.
Having the courage to make that first call can sometimes feel like climbing a mountain.
So, that's why I offer a warm, friendly one-to-one confidential counselling practice. I have over 20 years of experience and use an integrative approach which draws on a number of models to restore balance and promote personal growth. My experience has been built from continued and ongoing training, working within the voluntary and private sectors, NHS, HM Prisons, lecturing within university and college settings, supervising and training therapists, and in private practice.
I offer long and short term work and have extensive experience in many areas of counselling and psychotherapy working with individuals and couples.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
