As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP) , I provide a safe and confidential environment to explore any issues that may be troubling you. I offer face to face counselling online or telephone sessions and will work with you for the length of time you require.
I believe that every individual has the potential to become the best version of themselves. I can provide you with a warm and non-judgemental space to help you gain a self-awareness to enable you to grow. I can support you to overcome obstacles that are preventing you moving forward or keeping you lost in life.
The therapy I offer is person-centred, however, I do not see therapy as something that is the same for everyone, so I use a Pluralistic approach. This means that I incorporate techniques from a range of theories. By doing this I am able to tailor the therapy to suit the individual need of each client. Essentially this means that I offer you the support and tools that you require.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
During professional placements I have offered play therapy within schools, this is something which I wish to pursue further. I am currently looking at gaining further education in this field.
I hold a strong interest in perinatal mental health as pregnancy can be a huge life changing event, not only for the mother but also the father. I feel that currently there is not enough support within the community and am looking at areas to fill this gap.
Individual sessions are £45. Payment must be made either before or during the session. via bank transfer
If you wish to pay for a block booking of 6 sessions, then this at a rate of £240 but there will be no refund for sessions not used. The sessions mush also be used within an 8 week period.
I will be happy to answer any further questions or concerns that you may have. If you would like to contact me please ring my mobile or leave a message and I will return your call or email as a matter of urgency. I always endeavour to see clients within a short time period subject to availability.
