Sessions with me
I offer one to one counselling, on a short or long term basis.
On average you will need 6-8 sessions.
I work with adults, children and young people.
I treat most presenting concerns;
abuse (recent or historic)
I enjoy helping people to free themselves from their problems, reach their potential and become the person they were meant to be, or used to be!!
I advocate the person-centered approach over labelling 'disorders' and prescribing medications.
I ask 'what happened to you?' not 'what's wrong with you?'.
I offer an initial consultation over the phone or face to face as I feel its important that my clients feel comfortable with myself to move forward and reach their goals.
If you would like to discuss the counselling I offer please email or call me.
Evening and weekend appointments available!

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 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).
