I am a professionally qualified, experienced counsellor who works with both adults and young people. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and an associate member of Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As well as treating adults on a one-to-one basis, I have over 7 years experience of counselling young people privately and as an in-house counsellor within primary and secondary schools.
I am committed to a psychodynamic approach to treatment and my clinical work is consistent with the highest ethical standards required by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Counselling sessions can either be on a short or long term basis depending on your circumstances (minimum of 6 sessions advised).
Sessions take place weekly (at the same time) and last for 50 minutes.
Sessions with young people can take place either within school or from a private consulting room.

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.

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).
