I am a fully qualified accredited counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy with extensive experience counselling clients of all ages presenting with a wide range of difficulties.
In addition to my private practice, I have also worked as a counsellor for several years with a GP, with a women's charity and at a 6th form college that gave me specific experience and insight into the myriad of adolescent issues.
My integrative training enables me to offer a flexible approach, as a range of therapeutic models and tools will allow us to tailor therapy to your individual requirements. I firmly believe that it is the therapeutic relationship between us that will provide the safe supportive environment where you can explore, grow and fulfil your potential.
I offer both short and long term therapy to adults and older teenagers.

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.
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.
