I am an experienced and highly qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering sessions to individuals and couples, as well as supervision to professional colleagues.
I work face to face, online or by telephone, and offer short or long term therapy. I see people with a variety of issues, including relationship issues, depression, anxiety and life crisis. For many years I ran a bereavement service, so have a specialism in bereavement and loss.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) as well as being a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
My qualifications include:
MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Advanced Diploma in Couples Counselling
Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy
Diploma in Supervision
My extensive CPD also includes training in Complex Grief and working with Bereaved Children and Young people. I worked in the hospice movement as a counsellor, supervisor and then Bereavement Service Coordinator, for over 20 years.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).

We can talk through what you would like to get out of counselling and I can answer any questions you may have before deciding if you would like to meet with me.
Establishing a good therapeutic relationship is important in counselling, so at the end of our first session we will discuss if you feel I am the right counsellor for you, and if you would like to continue sessions together.
