MBACP (Accred) Psychotherapy/Counselling

About me

In current times, you may be feeling overwhelmed with uncertainty and change.  You may have questions about what the future holds for you.  Perhaps you have made discoveries about yourself, or decided to explore therapy as a tool to facilitate self-help into sustained change.

You are taking the first step to understanding your personal experience and what life could be like moving forward.

Therapeutic Counselling to Improve Life Management

I've been a qualified Person Centred therapist for over 14 years. My work is governed by the ethical framework of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I offer a supportive, non-judgemental, sensitive relationship to help you to make real changes in how you manage your life. My work promotes moving towards living authentically, building self-esteem and having a quieter mind.

Life’s challenges can have an ongoing impact on day to day living.  Difficulties can range from dealing with uncertainty/change, anxiety, GAD, depression, isolation, relationship/family issues, work-stress, anger, abuse, neglect, PTSD or childhood incidents.

Clients are encouraged towards a healthier mindset, adopting strategies and practical skills to move forward in a sustained, positive and self-regulating way.

It’s never too late to benefit from therapy.  Counselling changes lives irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, culture and diversity.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.

Further information

Contained, confidential therapy can be the most valuable thing you invest in for yourself.

Is there something preventing you from doing what you want to do or from behaving in the way that you want?

Taking the next step to speak your truth about experiences, thoughts, feelings, and deeply held beliefs can be a game changing, reviving experience.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
