About me

I offer online therapy using a safe and secure system. if you would like to learn more please feel free to contact me

Thank you for visiting my profile, I know that it can be quite daunting to look for support particularly when you're feeling vulnerable and with so many practitioners to choose from.

Sometimes life can be tough, we can get confused, low or stressed and can't seem to find our way, it's at these times that counselling can be useful and help us understand our emotions.

About me
I have many years experience in individual counselling, couple counselling and working with drug and alcohol misuse issues. I worked with Relate for many years as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer. In addition I worked in the alcohol and drugs field in the same capacity.
I am also a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor of counsellors.

I now work as a private practitioner in the Bedfordshire area. If you would like to find out more about what I can offer please don't hesitate in contacting me.

Specialist area
I have been a relationship therapist for many years.  In addition I work with trauma using EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) as an EMDR practitioner.

What is counselling
Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk through your experiences to better understand your situation, my role as a counsellor is to support you in this process and help you to make sense of your situation enabling you to take back control of your life.

Counselling takes place usually on a regular weekly basis for an hour, and may be long or short term depending on your needs.

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.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
