About me

I am a fully qualified, person centred counsellor and supervisor offering time and space to work through your issues in a safe and non judgmental manner. I am able to work with a range of approaches, however the pace and direction are always dictated by you. I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.

I have worked with clients who have brought issues including low self esteem; bereavement and pre-bereavement; bullying at work; domestic difficulties and abuse; parenting difficulties and work related stress among many others. I feel I can offer particular insight into panic disorder and other anxiety related issues.

Over the last 15 years, I have built extensive experience in working with children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties. I have considerable experience in working with self-harm, anger issues, anxiety and panic attacks. I am trained in, and regularly use, a range of play orientated therapies alongside traditional techniques. I believe that children deserve as much respect for their difficulties as everyone, and I aim to support them through this, often difficult, time of their lives with the same dignity and professionalism afforded to an adult.

I abide by the BACP ethical framework and have regular supervision. I am also fully insured and CRB checked.

I am happy to see clients online as well as in person.

After my initial 4 years of training, I have now completed 12 years of working with adults and children privately, as well as in the workplace, schools and drop in centres.

I am able to provide references from the public and private sector, as well as testimonials, kindly offered by from individuals.

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.

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.
