About me


Are you feeling anxious, sad, low in mood, or comfort eating just a bit too much? Are there relationship problems, perhaps decisions you need to make? Are you going through a divorce or have you experienced a bereavement or another kind of loss?

These are just some of the situations where counselling can help, providing you with the opportunity and the space to safely explore and work out what you think and feel. It can also help you to decide any changes you may want to make and how this might be achieved. 

I offer a quiet, pleasant place where you can be in control of the subject, pace and depth of the discussion and exploration of the concerns that you bring. There is no subject too big or too trivial for us to look at together. I  offer a confidential and non-judgemental relationship that acknowledges and respects your right to say and feel as you do.

Counselling is for anyone and everyone. For people of no faith or any faith. I care deeply about inclusion. Please talk to me about any special concerns you may have that might prevent you from receiving the counselling you need and want. I will do my best to accommodate you.

Working with adults on a one to one basis, I am an integrative counsellor with the person centred approach at the heart of my work. This means that by drawing upon different therapeutic models I am able to work creatively on a wide range of issues, in a way that will best suit you.

Unsure that counselling is for you? Please phone me for a confidential chat or for more information, please click on my website link above.

I offer the first session free of charge, this gives us the opportunity to meet, for you to ask any questions and to find out how I work. We can also decide whether we feel comfortable enough with each other for a trusting relationship to develop.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
