**I am happy to say I am offering online and telephone counselling**
Hi, you may be flicking through all these profiles trying to decide how to choose the right counsellor for you.
I understand this may feel like a daunting task, but it is a brave thing you are doing to be taking these first steps. For me the key to successful counselling is the relationship made during the process. I work in a way that provides you with a safe environment to explore whatever brings you to counselling.
I truly believe than anyone can benefit from having a space purely to express themselves in an open minded atmosphere. I came into counselling as I feel everyone should have someone to talk to.
I have worked with many different types of clients including survivors of domestic violence, abuse, young people, children, prisoners and many more.
I use an integrative approach to counselling, this means as every client is individual and unique I aim to use the style best suited to you. I can offer short term or long term counselling, whatever you feel is best for you.
If you any queries or would like to book an appointment please get in touch.

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.
