I know how it feels to lose trust in your own inner voice, and I believe passionately that Person-Centred Counselling can be a powerful support to gain back that trust. Perhaps you struggle to make sense of the way you were parented. Perhaps you have experienced an abusive or toxic relationship, or a major life event that felt like it pulled the rug from under you. Perhaps there are a combination of factors that bring you to consider counselling. I offer a free consultation, as I understand that you need to find the right fit for you.
Training, qualifications & experience

I am also qualified in Youth and Community Work, and have considerable experience of working with children and young people.
I am fluent in British Sign Language.
Many of my clients have experienced situations of abuse, either as adults or children. I work with a number of domestic abuse agencies, and have a particular understanding of narcissistic abuse.
I am trained to counsel online and by telephone as well as face to face.
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.
