I am a professional, reliable and ethical practitioner with a great deal of life experience. I have been counselling for 7 yrs and understand that each person is an individual in their own right and come with their own personal individual issues. With this in mind my approach to counselling is integrative.
As a volunteer over the past ten years I have been involved specifically with supporting women, and have developed a women’s group and run retreats for my local church. I also have created and delivered self esteem and confidence building courses for women of diverse backgrounds. I also work through an organisation called Deep Release, where the depth work uses many useful creative interventions.
In my private practice I use wide range of techniques to address issues including: anxiety, depression, work related stress, dreams, low self-esteem, bereavement, emotional and sexual abuse, and some forms of trauma and deep rooted issues.
I am a member of the Association of Christian Counsellors and the BCAP. I attended a Deep Release Regional Training Group and annual conferences and am continually achieving CPD.

Association for Christian Counsellors
The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK. The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.
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).
