I'm a therapist and counsellor based in Shrewsbury. I work with people with a range of emotional issues who want a change for the better in their lives.
Counselling can help you overcome depression, anxiety (and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)), low self-esteem, panic attacks, anger issues, addiction, feeling sad, and coping with family issues, separation and divorce, among many other problems.
These issues or the harm of past trauma may in turn underlie such problems as eating disorders, addiction, insomnia, nightmares, and panic attacks. Counselling provides a means to uncover and remove the obstacles to peace.
Beginning counselling can be daunting and you might want to know more about me before you take the step of booking a session. I welcome any questions and offer, free of charge and without obligation, a 15-minute phone call to help you make your choice. Counselling depends on finding the right counsellor for you.
I also run Men's Counselling Shropshire, contactable at www.menscounsellingshropshire.co.uk
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a postgraduate degree (MA) in Clinical Counselling. I've worked with clients from a wide range of backgrounds struggling with depression, anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, anger issues, addiction, feeling sad, and coping with family issues, separation and divorce, among many other problems.
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.

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).
