About me

Counselling doesn’t change the bad things that happen to us, but it can help us to gain a better understanding of what has happened, and offer a chance to leave the past behind.

Counselling started for me as a client.  I was at a point in my life where many changes were happening around me, over which I had no control.  I felt lost and deeply unhappy and I had no idea why.

I have taken the road you are thinking of taking.  I have faced the doubts and fears of wanting to believe that I could find help by talking to a stranger, yet not really understanding how it would work.  Through my own counselling I have been helped to look at my biggest fears in bite size pieces and with help, I found a way to make some changes, which brought me peace of mind.

As a person centred counsellor I am interested in you and the events that have stopped you from getting on with your life.  I will help you to discover what choices you do have.  My job is to listen to you and to help you look deeper and giving you space to reflect, which will help you to gain a better understanding of how these events have affected you.

With my help and through the counselling process, you can gain healing from the past and find the freedom that comes from a better understanding of your experience.  I will help you learn to trust in your instincts and find a way forward towards a future which allows you to take better care of yourself.

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.
