About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor and will work with you to help you find the answers that you are looking for. It may be that you feel anxious, low or depressed, or that you have something particular that you want to talk about/deal with. You may just want to 'feel better'.  Whatever the issue, we can work together to help you.

In these times of Covid19 many people are experiencing anxieties and stress. Even problems that seemed manageable before can now feel too much. It’s as though everything is sitting on a bed of Covid worries, so it’s not surprising that people are struggling. You are not alone if this is happening to you. Talking and finding new ways of coping or a new perspective can really help.

As a therapist, I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. When working Face to Face I offer a quiet and private space where you can feel free to offload, talk about your feelings or explore what’s troubling you. I also offer on-line appointments, either because of Covid restrictions or because that’s what suits you better. I will still be in my counselling room, offering you the same opportunity to speak privately to me.

If you are looking for a therapist as part of your course requirements I have a good understanding of your needs as I taught counselling for many years and enjoy working with students.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor, have an Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling, a Master of Arts in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Mindfulness. I have a certificate in On-Line Counselling and I am also a qualified Supervisor, Teacher and Communication Support Worker. I also belong to the Association for Person Centred Creative Arts.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
