About me

I welcome all clients from the age of 8 years. You can access a free 20 minute consultation to see if the way I work suits your needs. 

I am a fully qualified counsellor, practising since 2006. I am an accredited member of the professional standards authority, BACP

I offer telephone counselling and appointments over zoom, or face to face in a calm, safe space, which ever way suits you, the client.  I will accept clients from anywhere in the UK for telephone and zoom calls. If you would like face to face sessions you would need to travel to the ST7 area. My room has disabled access and parking. 

I have vast experience of working with survivors of sexual abuse, loss, anxiety, depression, miscarriage and general low mood. 

Sessions would usually be weekly, on the same day and time each week, although I am flexible to suit your needs. The sessions are led by you, the client, I will not tell you what you should be thinking or feeling. I offer a non judgemental, confidential way of working. 

Some people find it difficult to talk about their feeling so I have many different ways of working to suit your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in 2007 with a Diploma in counselling.

I worked at a local Rape Crisis Centre until 2018 where I enhanced  my training with many workshops and courses. After leaving there my continued professional development continued to ensure I am up to date with changes in the profession and new ways of working.

Became accredited with the BACP  in 2010 and still am an accredited member.

Achieved my Certificate in Clinical Supervision from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy in 2014. 

I have over 2000 hours of counselling experience. 

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.

BACP

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.

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.

Free parking is available, which is flat and even, giving easy access for wheelchair users.
