About me

Making the decision to come for counselling and finding a therapist can seem daunting and taking that first step is courageous! I'm a Person Centred Counsellor, which means I will always put you at the heart of the therapeutic process. I believe that therapy is about understanding yourself better; gaining tools and resources; and learning to make different choices about how you would like to live your life.  Whatever it is that is troubling you, feeling this way can be a very lonely experience. As your counsellor I can offer you a safe and confidential space where together we can explore the difficulties you are experiencing and what is going on for you.

I have 10 years’ experience of working with both adults and children, and have worked with a range of difficulties including addiction, sexual, physical, mental and emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties and low confidence and self-esteem. 

Finding the right therapist for you is so important, therefore I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation, so you can decide if I’m the right therapist for you. After this I will carry out an initial assessment with you which will usually take around 20-30 minutes. 

If you would like a consultation please email or leave a message on my mobile and I will get back to you within 24 -48 hours.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile

Member organisations

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.
