About me

I am a friendly and experienced counsellor who is passionate about providing both the space and support to allow people to achieve real change in their lives. I am a fully registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and am committed to delivering a high quality and ethical practice.

I am also a member of the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice and I incorporate their ethical guidelines into my work with families, couples and young people.

I am experienced at dealing with a range of client issues and can work with several models of counselling to suit your specific needs. I have particular experience in working with anxiety, depression, addiction, childhood abuse, trauma, eating disorders, and relationship issues.

I have many years of experience working as part of helping relationships with people. I am strictly confidential and passionate about the work I do. I am happy to help you to deal with anything you are going through and have worked with a wide variety of clients.

I am available to work with teenagers and adults and am happy to discuss my approach with differing age groups if you would like to get in touch.

Why not book an initial appointment and we can see if working together could be of benefit to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a highly qualified practitioner with a first class BSc (Hons) Degree in Counselling, which included advanced counselling theory from Person Centred, CBT, Psychodynamic and Existential schools of counselling. I am also a qualified Systemic Practitioner following post graduate study at the Tavistock in London.

I have spent many years working in addiction services and with children and family counselling charities as well as within a busy private practice. 

Member organisations

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
