It takes a leap of faith to make contact with a counsellor and then it is important for you to feel safe, confidential and supported without judgement for you to be able to start to work together. It is therefore wise to book an initial consultation to see how you feel with the person and for me to assess if I am the right person to help you.
Since the start of the covid pandemic we have all had to adapt to online working. This has proved to be surprisingly successful. It allows people to feel relaxed in their own home environment for appointments. It is also proving easier for partners to attend together in couple counselling. For this reason I have decided to work entirely online using video. This can be via Zoom, whattsap , teams or skype.
Here are 4 reasons to choose me as your counsellor.
1. I have over 20 years experience as a general trained counsellor in all the areas listed on my profile below. I am an accredited member of BACP adhering to their code of ethics and conduct. I am accredited with B.I.C.A for the support of fertility issues and clinic treatments.
2. I have reasonable fees for the private sector which reflect my wish to provide counselling which is affordable to all.
3.I am a practicing specialist in counselling individuals and couples with relationship and fertility issues. I have worked in a licenced fertility clinic for many years and can therefore prepare and support people considering fertility options before, during, and after treatments.
4) I have worked for years with people experiencing a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

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.
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).
