About me

I am an experienced, senior accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotheray (BACP).

I believe that choosing a therapist who is right for you individually can be very difficult and I do not believe in clients simply coming to me to cure them. Rather I feel counselling is a collaborative process where I can help clients develop the skills and strategies they need to equip them for life's stresses, traumas and ever changing circumstance, as well as providing an independent ear to listen without passing judgement. This approach I believe helps people live and enjoy a much happier and fulfilling life-style.

I have 17+ years experience in a wide range of issues and have worked in a wide range of settings, including the NHS both long term secondary care and GP practice, with a nationally affiliated mental health charity and private practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I have accessibility access at my TF3 premises. Please let me know you need this service at first contact so I can offer an appointment at the correct venue.


In person

I am a qualified Clinical supervisor (Post Graduate Certificate from University of Chester).
