About me

Hi, I'm Ross. I offer confidential, discreet, sensitive and non-judgemental counselling. I work from a humanistic perspective and appreciate each person as an individual. 

I have over Ten years of counselling experience and qualified through The University of Nottingham with a BA (hons) in humanistic counselling. Since that time I have continued to train and develop exploring many differing aspects of mental-health and counselling.

I have trained and worked in a range of approaches from short-term work to more in-depth therapy. I have experience of solution-focused therapy, nutritional aspects, neuroscience, and much more. I believe my way of working is tailored to your needs with a steady base of being kind, supportive and encouraging.

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.
