About me

My training first began in the early 1990s and I initially worked mostly with individuals. I completed further training in 2014 which qualified me to work with relationships. I offer warmth and will treat you with respect. I see that counselling can be a way to effect changes, whether they be changes in thinking or behaviour

After a free, no-obligation discussion by phone or Webcam, I can set up an initial face-to-face session, In this first session, I will ask you what you want from counselling and I will work with you towards achieving your goals. I will review with you periodically to check that the direction in which we are going is appropriate for you.

I work face-to-face in Sale, Greater Manchester. You can come alone or work alongside a partner. I consider myself to be a gay affirmative practitioner.

Member organisations


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.
