I am a person-centred therapist. I have been practising for 18 years, post qualification.
I work with individuals and with couples. My experience includes the following issues: depression; anxiety; low self-esteem; managing anger; bereavement; relationships and work-related stress.
I am used to working within limited time boundaries and on open-ended contracts.

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 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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My normal fee is £40 per hour, for individuals and £45 per hour for couples.
I can offer daytime appointments Tuesday to Friday 9-5. I can offer evening appointments Thursdays and Fridays. Last appointment 7pm. I don't work weekends.
I work at home and the room used for counselling is on the ground floor. We live in a cul-de-sac and parking nearby is not a problem.
