About me

Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile.  I am a person centred counsellor in private practice, registered with BACP (MBACP} and I work for a local Cancer Care Service and also with young people in a busy secondary school.

I use an integrative, humanistic approach, taking my lead from the person I am with at all times. If you are feeling overwhelmed or confused by current or past life experiences, I can offer a gentle listening ear to help you understand what is happening for you. Being listened to and accepted is hugely important to our personal wellbeing and as such, I promise to offer a safe, respectful, supportive and non judgemental counselling environment.

You may like to know that I am able to offer a range of creative and mindful techniques within my practice and how we work together will depend entirely on your wishes and needs. You may feel a little nervous about counselling and taking that first step may be a bit scary for you.

The first step is to contact me and we can talk about what sort of help you think you might need and I can explain how I might be able to help.  I aim to respond to enquiries within 48 hours. I am able to offer face to face, telephone and online appointments for adults, and face to face for young people aged 12 years and upwards.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
