About me

I am a member and senior accredited with BACP (British Association for Counselling  and Psychotherapy) and subscribe to their Ethical framework. Senior Accreditation means I have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association. This also means I am required to renew my accreditation on an annual basis and provide evidence of continual professional development (CPD).

What happens?

I offer one to one appointments for a whole range of issues. They last an hour and are usually weekly at the same day and same time each week. Part of our first session involves a brief contract which we agree between us.

I will provide a safe confidential environment in a self contained log cabin within the grounds of my home.

Further Information

I am located 5 minutes from the M1 motorway (between junction's J37 and J38 ) - 30 minutes drive or less from Doncaster, Leeds, Sheffield, Huddersfield, Rotherham, Wakefield and within 5 minutes drive from Barnsley city centre.

Off street parking is available. Unfortunately no waiting room is available for anyone accompanying you! Where possible arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time in order for therapy to take place at the allocated time in the therapy room.

I offer flexible hours Monday to Thursday to suit working people. To access my premises there is one step to the room.

I have an Enhanced Certificate from the Disclosure & Barring Service to work with Young People and Adults - last updated January 2017.
