About me

Hello,
Finding the right counsellor is extremely important so here is a little bit about me.

I have been actively counselling now for 18 years with sound counselling qualifications. I am Accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have worked with people from all ages. 

I offer confidential online and face to face counselling. 

In my counselling room I provide a warm, welcoming and emotionally safe environment to explore any worries, problems or issues that are causing you distress, sadness or anxiety.

You may feel that  a short period of counselling will help or that something more long term will be supportive, we can work this out together. 

I also  offer Clinical Supervision to fellow Counsellors , Pastoral Support & Teaching staff.

My training includes many different approaches in counselling- Psychodynamic, Person Centred, CBT and Solution Focused Counselling means I can help in different ways.

My experience includes working with

Anger Management ,ADHD, Autism
Bereavement &Loss,
Stress,
LGBT
Divorce,
Anxiety,
Panic Attacks,
Parenting Issues
Depression,
Low Self Esteem,
Relationship Issues,
Work related problems

Please contact me if you feel you would like to arrange a Counselling appointment or to arrange Clinical Supervision.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

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).
