About me

Life can be difficult and confusing and our experiences and circumstances can significantly impact our lives.  We can become stuck in ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, so having a professional to help us recognise and understand these patterns can be hugely beneficial for change and growth.

In today's busy world we don't often get fully seen or heard, or have the time to explore and reflect on how we are feeling.  We look after our physical health, but can often neglect our emotional and mental health.  I believe there is huge benefit in making time and space for our mental well-being, which ultimately impacts our physical health also.

I am a person centred counsellor and supervisor who will provide you with a professional, safe and therapeutic space to explore what is happening in your life.  I work empathically and non judgmentally, with honesty and integrity.  I also work with couples experiencing the many challenges that relationship can bring. 

Finding the right therapist for you is an important part of your journey.  It is not easy to open up and put your trust in a stranger, but it is my belief that with the right therapist you can begin to experience the benefits that a therapeutic relationship can have on your life.

I am happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have and offer a free 30 minute initial telephone or video consultation.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
