I am an accredited BACP Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I am also a UKRC independent practitioner.
I have over 25 years experience in the counselling field and have counselled clients with a wide range of issues in short and long term counselling.
I offer a warm, sensitive, compassionate and confidential approach to enable the process of change and healing to occur.
I work in an integrative way and would assist you in letting go of past constraints, blocks, resistance, stuckness and old habitual patterns which no longer serve you.
I am passionate about helping people discover a more fulfilling way of life and opening up to reach their full potential for healing and wholeness.

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 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.
