About me

Welcome, I am here to offer you a warm, understanding and compassionate counselling service. I work from a dedicated therapy room, where together we can discuss some of the reasons why you want to have counselling and explore what you feel may be holding you back in your life, even if your challenges feel overwhelming.

I believe that the trust and safety in our therapeutic relationship is fundamental to you feeling that you can open up and allow the process of change to unfold. I am deeply committed to providing you with a non-judgemental and holding space to assist you in your journey.

This may be the first time you have considered counselling, which I understand can often be a daunting experience. I am happy to talk through any concerns and answer any questions you may have to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you. You are welcome to call me for a free no obligation 20 minute discussion to see if you feel I can offer you what you need.

I work with adults and young people and I can offer you my experience in working with, but not limited to issues such as such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, low self-esteem and PTSD and body dysmorphia.

I can work with you either short term for an agreed number of sessions, or open ended where we can assess your progress over time. I am a fully qualified and register member of the BACP and use their ethics to underpin my counselling practise at all times.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
