Welcome, I offer you a safe place for us to talk confidentially free from the pressures of your everyday life. I will help you to find your way through the issues that have brought you to this point. I am qualified to cover a wide range of topics with anyone over the age of sixteen. Most common challenges that my clients overcome are anxiety, depression, relationship and work problems, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss. You may be feeling ‘stuck’ or overwhelmed and talking to someone outside of your situation will help you work through the difficulties you are experiencing.
I am also qualified to provide supervision to both counsellors and coaches. I have 20 years experience as a trainer and coach in people issues and 8 year as counsellor to support development of those who work with me.
I also deliver workshops that bring the therapeutic benefits of art and the natural world as a recreational and CPD activity. I use a beautiful rural setting that allows working inside and outdoors.
My clients and supervisees have appreciated our meetings by Zoom during the Covid19 pandemic. I personally have been pleasantly surprised at how well this has worked in helping clients through this difficult time. I will continue to offer this option even once it is safe to meet face to face.

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.
