About me

I have worked as a counsellor for 20  years. I trained with Relate and have experience in working with couples and individuals. The main focus of my work is relationship issues but that often includes dealing with wider family issues as well as previous life experiences, depression and anxiety.

I offer a safe space for clients to explore their issues in order to assist them to decide on a positive way forward in their lives. 

I am based near Castlewellan and Newcastle.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA (Hons) Psychology
MA Social Psychology
Cert Marital and Couple Counselling
Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision

I have my own private practice but I also work as a trainer and teacher in 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.
