Due to the current Corvid pandemic, I am now offering an online counselling and supervision service as well as Face to Face work. I offer eco 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.
With over 20 years of experience, I 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 private and voluntary sectors, NHS, HM Prisons, lecturing within university and college settings, supervising and training therapists, and in my 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.

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.
