About me

Are you feeling anxious or suffering from a low mood? Perhaps you are experiencing relationship problems or struggling to find your own identity? Having a safe, supportive space where you can explore these issues can be a useful way of finding closure and developing your self awareness. 

I work with individuals who are over 18 and who wish to explore their challenging emotions. For an informal chat about counselling and what it can offer, please give me a no obligation call. 

I offer an open-ended or short-term service, giving you as much time as you need. Each session lasts for 1 hour, allowing you the opportunity to discuss any problems or issues that may be affecting you. Working largely in a humanistic way, I tailor my approach to the individual and their unique set of needs.

Any difficulties that you are experiencing will be dealt with sensitively and in a transparent manner. I take a down-to-earth approach to counselling and always encourage individuals to be as authentic as possible. Through gentle exploration and kindly curiosity, maybe we can find the answers that you are looking for.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) in Counselling
  • Foundation of Arts in Counselling
  • Certificate in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression
  • I work in both private practice and for the NHS IAPT service.

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.

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.

Off-road parking is available.
