About me

Fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience working with adults and adolescents.  BACP Accredited and Registered based in Southport. I offer reliable, safe and confidential face to face, online and telephone counselling  and psychotherapy.

I regularly attend continuing professional development and have further training in working with trauma and childhood related issues.

I offer shorter term counselling and longer term/open ended psychodynamic psychotherapy which gives time and space to explore deeper rooted issues related to the past.

Counselling is ultimately about change and this can sometimes be painful and difficult. You will be offered a safe, nurturing environment to help you achieve your goals

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist with an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and further specialised training in childhood sexual abuse, trauma and dissociation. I trained and qualified with WPF London/St. Albans who provide a rigorous training, including personal therapy throughout the duration of the course.

I have provider recognition with BUPA to provide counselling and psychotherapy and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I have over 17 years experience working in the voluntary/charity sector, private practice, GP and PCT work and I am an experienced EAP counsellor.

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.

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

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
