About me

I understand it can be difficult and you may feel anxious about taking the first step into making a counselling appointment, however through my work with MIND, Relate, Spurgeons and working in schools, Colleges and universities . I have seen the very real and life changing benefit to a persons life attending counselling can have.  I offer sessions for individuals, families and couples and work in an integrative way so we can work  with a style of counselling that best suits your requirements.  Being able to understand and recognise patterns in your own and family life can make a real difference and enable you to achieve the goals and address the issues that have brought you to counselling.

I have experience of delivering group counselling and supervision sessions, as well as tutoring on a CPCAB counselling course.

I  offer a discounted rate to trainee counsellors requiring counselling. Other concessions are available please email if you have an enquiry.
Please feel free to email or call me to arrange a free consultation and find out more about counselling and how it can work for you.

Member organisations

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.
