I am an experienced counsellor, mental health advisor and trainer, and seeks to provide effective solutions for many of life’s emotional and psychological difficulties.
Initially trained in North Yorkshire, I have worked in a range of educational and mental health settings in different parts of the country with NHS, local authority education and social care departments and schools as well as voluntary sector and private practice.
Individual clients groups have included those with a range of difficulties including Special Educational Needs (SEN), poor mental health and additional social care needs. I bring many years of experience working with children, young people and adults experiencing loss, transition, change and re-adjustment to difficulties in life.
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).
