CORONA VIRUS FREE HALF AN HOUR INTRODUCTORY SESSION -
I am offering telephone, Skype or Zoom whilst the current health advice is to avoid personal contact. Please contact me if you would like to be able to have some space to off load what is going on for you.
When life all got too much, and I couldn't face the world, I knew that I needed to talk to someone other than my family and friends. Someone who wouldn't judge me on my past or offer advice on what I should or shouldn't do. I wanted someone just to listen to my story and allow me to work out my own answers, in a space where I felt heard and held. It was suggested that counselling would enable me to find this, I still remember asking "What is counselling and how will it help me?" Hand on heart it offered me everything that I so desperately was searching for, I still feel to this day so fortunate to of discovered what counselling provides, and in my instance, it gave me hope when I felt despair.
As a qualified Person-Centred counsellor, I feel that I can offer you a confidential safe space, showing compassion and respect, free of judgement. Empathically, attentively listening to what you bring. My belief is that mutual trust is the foundation on which a good therapeutic relationship develops, through being open and honest within oneself change can occur.
If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me either by email, or phone or text on 07796 143414. If I'm unable to take your call then please leave me a message and I will call you back as soon as I am able.
I have a private counselling room with parking within a village location. I offer face to face or telephone counselling. I am available day time weekdays, Monday to Friday. I offer a free consultation as I believe trust and feeling comfortable with who you work with is the essence of a therapeutic relationship.
As well as being a registered member of BACP my qualification was awarded by an accredited BACP course. I have experience working with a range of issues. I also help facilitate group therapy of the bereaved through suicide.

I work within the Ethical Framework and Code of Conduct of the BACP
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

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).
