I am currently taking on new clients
Welcome. If you are here you are likely in some distress. Your pain and your struggles matter, and I am glad you are seeking support.
I realise that it may be difficult to choose between so many professionals, particularly when you may already be feeling overwhelmed by your problems. I am always happy to offer a free half hour either in person or on the phone; my hope is that this time will help you to get a sense of how I work. It may also give you some clarity on the kind of counselling that will suit you best.
If we were to work together, we would explore what is bothering you. It is a safe and non judgemental space for you to talk, and gain some understanding about what is going on for you, be it a deeply traumatising situation, depression and anxiety, or any other form of distress. This way of working can help you to feel better and support you to move towards the life you want for yourself. I believe strongly that you are best placed to understand what it is you need, and that together we can help you to gain clarity and find out what you need for yourself.
Working within the person centred approach, I offer:
- Daytime and evening sessions
- A safe, warm, non-judgemental space
- Flexible payment dependent on individual circumstances
If you decide you would like to work with me, then please get in touch either through my website or using the details provided here.

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.
