I am a qualified counsellor registered with the BACP- (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
I Practice Integrative counselling which combines cognitive, humanistic and psychodynamic methods of counselling as well as hypnotherapy. I offer an affordable service providing both long term and short term counselling to adults and on a one to one basis. I have been in private practice for 12 years working from a purpose built therapy room located in my garden, offering a safe confidential space. I offer a free 30 minute consultation either in person or by telephone to establish whether I am the right counsellor for you. My room is kept ventilated and is thoroughly sanitised between clients. I have had all vaccinations including booster to keep my clients as safe as possible. My aim is to make counselling available and affordable for everyone particularly at this time when free services are overwhelmed with long waiting lists.

I can offer weekend and evening appointments for those who work office hours.

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.
