About me

I’m a person-centred counsellor also qualified to provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and will sometimes integrate the two approaches if it is of benefit and with the agreement of the client. 

I provide counselling via face to face appointments from rented consultation rooms in South Liverpool and also provide online counselling appointments via video call from my own home. I am currently available one day a week each Tuesday with some limited availability on other days of the week.

I have worked with a range of personal and interpersonal issues such as:

  • Sexuality and coming out
  • Gender and identity
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Grief, loss and bereavement 
  • Low mood or difficult emotions
  • Dealing with an HIV diagnosis and other issues around HIV
  • Cancer and long term conditions
  • Low self-esteem
  • Concerns about sex and relationships
  • Trauma
  • Family problems

Whether you want to talk to someone just once or need support over a number of sessions, I can work with you to improve your well-being and find ways to enjoy a more fulfilling life.

Your privacy

What you share with me is confidential and is not disclosed to others without your permission and only when strictly necessary. I will only ever tell other people what you've told me if you're at serious risk of harming yourself, harming others, or if I am legally required to. If this is the case, I will endeavour to talk this through with you first.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified to Level 4 in Person Centred Counselling and Level 5 in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ( CBT ) and I am currently training in EMDR. 

I have been practicing as a counsellor since 2011 and I am an accredited member of the BACP. 

I have worked in charitable organisations and NHS services encompassing LGBTQ, Sex Worker, HIV and Cancer services. I undertake continuous professional development as required by my professional body and I have a strong commitment to undertaking training relevant to my practice and my clients – this has encompassed training around dealing with trauma, suicide, loss and bereavement, and living with long term conditions.

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.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
