I am a humanistic existential counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide one-to-one counselling within a safe, confidential environment where you are able to constructively explore any issues that are causing you difficulties. I believe that by building a strong therapeutic relationship and working collaboratively there is potential to increase self-awareness, understanding and confidence which can lead to clarity, insight and change.
I have experience of working in a variety of agencies, including working in specialist agencies for substance misuse and rape and sexual abuse. I also have extensive experience of working with young people (16-25), including providing counselling within educational settings.
The number of sessions can be negotiated and I can offer flexible appointment times, including some evening and weekend appointments. You also have the option of an informal chat on the phone prior to booking an appointment to discuss your needs and for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.

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