Dealing with many of life’s difficult issues and events such as bereavement, relationship breakdown, job loss or illness can leave us with feelings of stress, anxiety or depression. However there can be many reasons why life may leave us with feelings of unrest, dissatisfaction or unhappiness. It could be issues at work, with family or friends, uncertainty in the future or coming to terms with something from the past. Sometimes talking with those closest to you may not be the easiest option as you may feel guarded in what you say and not want to upset or offend those you care about. It could be a difficult subject to approach.
Coming to counselling can be daunting and I understand even making contact can be difficult. My aim is to offer you a confidential environment where you will feel respected, not judged and safe. I work with you as an individual working towards a more settled and fulfilling life.
I am a BACP accredited counsellor. Including private practice I have experience with the NHS as a Staff Support Counsellor. Other areas of counselling experience are in a manufacturing, university and prison environment. I have worked with a higher percentage of male clients and familiar with male mental health issues. I can offer short or long term work with flexibility.
I work with many EAPs (Employee Assisted Programs) and I offer the opportunity to work with organisations on an ad hoc basis. Please contact me to discuss.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).

When I work
Appointments available from 9.00am-4.00pm Tue, Wed, Thu
I use Zoom as a platform for sessions. I send out invites the day before. You will enter a waiting room where once accessed you will have control of turning your mic and volume on. Once we are both online I will lock the chat securing the room so no one else can enter.
I will call you on your preferred number. I ask for a back up number in the case of technology failure.
