About me

Perhaps a counselling relationship is what you need to help you through. Although family, close friends and colleagues can offer valuable support, sometimes these very relationships can be barriers to exploring honestly and openly what you may be thinking or experiencing. This is where the therapeutic counselling relationship could help.

It may be counselling appears to be a daunting prospect for you. However, I would encourage you to try my initial "getting to know you” online session, where we can discover what specifically you are looking for and agree the best approach for exploring things more deeply.

Please remember, there are no set rules for your therapy requirements, that is for you to determine with my help and support. Fundamentally, person-centred counselling respects you and your experiences as unique. Simply put, the route to well-being is aided by insight and awareness, gained through a therapeutic relationship based on trust, honesty, non-judgment and acceptance.

As an experienced person-centered BACP-registered counsellor, I place strong emphasis on getting to know and understand both you and your situation, and to appreciate the issues which are negatively impacting your life. My considerable training and experience, in dealing with a wide range of issues, can begin to help in restoring your sense of well-being.

Please contact me now to arrange an initial "getting to know you” online session where we can discover what you are looking for, how I work and to see if we would like to work together.

Counselling sessions (50 mins for individuals/ 1 hour for couples) cost £50 for individuals and £80 for couples. Please ask for details for a reduced fee, if needed.

I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. DBS Certificate held.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
