Do you feel life is getting on top of you? Are you feeling isolated, lonely, anxious or lost? Have you gone through a life-changing event? Or do you feel that you're struggling to cope with day to day life?
Covid 19 has forced everyone to find new ways of living our lives. Adults, young people and children are finding a "new normal" quite stressful as we try to manage a situation that has no clear end date.
Contacting a counsellor for the first time can sometimes be difficult, especially if you're unsure how it can help, once you've made that important call or email we can arrange some time together to identify any negative thoughts and explore any issues that may be affecting you.
My aim as a counsellor is to offer a safe, non-judgmental environment that will enable you to explore any problems you may have at present. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I work with different therapeutic approaches and adapt these to suit your individual needs
I offer both short and long term counselling, by working together you will be able to identify solutions and strategies to help make the changes in life you may need. I hold BACP Accreditation which recognises the achievement of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and helps clients to make an informed decision when choosing a therapist.
I’ve been a therapist for over 10 years in a variety of settings and services for adults, children, and young people, including schools, bereavement services, Mental health charity, and private practice. I am a registered provider for Bupa, Aviva, AXA PPP health care, and Vitality Health.

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)
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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
