I am passionate about working with individuals and in building a meaningful relationship from which you can explore the issues that may be causing you difficulty at this point in your life.
My belief is that every person is capable of making changes in their lives, through understanding, new awareness and personal exploration/development.
My life experience, both professionally and personally, provides me with a unique and balanced perspective and I aim to provide a confidential, safe and caring approach in meeting your individual needs.
I have experience of a wide variety of issues including, depression, stress, anxiety, , relationship issues, bereavement, addictions, self esteem and domestic violence.
Please feel free to contact me whatever your needs may be, either by telephone or email. We can then discuss your counselling options in more detail. All contact will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Life is precious .Its your choice how you live it !
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Gestalt counselor and a member of the BACP. I have a background of working with children as a foster carer and a mentor for Action for children and Catch 22. As a counselor, I have worked with all age groups from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
I offer an individually tailored service to address the issues that impact on you most. I believe that people have within themselves the strengths and resources to effect real change in their lives. You can come to share in that belief, through an empathetic alliance with an attentive counselor.
I receive regular supervision and as a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to BACP principles, guidelines and codes of conduct including confidentiality.
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 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).
