About me

Do you need space and time to talk?

If so, I am here to offer you the time and space to explore your worries and concerns in a confidential and safe space.

About Us

In a busy world full of judgements and rules, counselling can offer you a space where your thoughts and worries will be heard, acknowledged, and respected. I can provide you with a place where you will not feel judged and where you can feel free to express your deepest concerns.

Getting Started

I appreciate that making the first step can be incredibly challenging. If you have not experienced any counselling or psychotherapy before it is understandable that you may be nervous about what to expect. Many people may find the idea of having counselling / psychotherapy daunting. If you would like to understand what it is I can offer you, and how it may help you, please contact me by following the link to make an appointment or click 'message us' above. I am currently working via telephone and online counselling, due to the current COVID 19 restrictions.

I will try to make your first consultation with me as comfortable as possible for you because I know it can be an unknown experience. During this initial consultation, I will work with you to explore what has brought you to counselling. Having counselling with me will give to you the confidential, quiet, and ethically secure space you need to explore your concerns.

My approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy

Drawing from my diverse experience of life and my professional training as a counsellor / psychotherapist, I will support you in exploring the issues you bring. I will work with you to explore any past and current issues and stay with you on that journey until the time you feel ready to move forward.

I work interactively with a wide range of clients from all backgrounds and age groups, all experiencing very individual and sensitive issues. My experience incorporates work within the NHS, Educational and Special needs provision, private practice, and the charity sector, and draws from combined professional and registered training.

Member organisations

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.
