About me

Individual Adult Counselling.

Currently working via zoom or Telephone

welcome to my page. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore what is on your mind.  My preferred manner is a warm conversational style and I may draw on differing techniques (modalities) to assist you with an issue you maybe having, an aspect of personal growth or gaining acceptance around a situation.

I offer a free, no obligation, telephone consultation. (This would need to be scheduled). So you can ask me any questions and I can explain further how I like to work, and what you can expect from our sessions.

I have a special interest and experience of working with addictions and have adopted a trauma informed approach.

Member organisations


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.
