I have been a qualified therapist for 20 years and have completed over 20'000 clinical hours.
I feel that counselling is something that we probably all need at some point in our lives, it gives us a space to talk to someone who;won't judge you, wont form opinions on what you say, someone who will try to really understand what you are going through and try to help you find the best solution for you.
My practice is integrated which means that I draw upon theories such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT; this allows my approach to adapt to fit the individual client, as I believe that each client is unique.
I specialise in many areas; relationship issues, addictive behaviour , stress & anxiety, loss, health issues and anger management as well as issues of sexuality and confidence building.
I also work with families, couples and groups.
I provide a totally confidential environment that supports clients needs. I am directive and motivated to supporting clients find a way through their problems. I do not judge and offer support to a diverse client group.
I am the owner of a training centre offering courses on Counselling, Personal Development and CPD. Please feel free to contact me to chat about any of these courses.
As a qualified Clinical Supervisor I also support other Counsellors and Therapists, and I work as a tutor training new counsellors as well as CPD courses for qualified Therapists.

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.
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).
