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 10 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.
For the duration of the current coronavirus emergency, I am only offering online sessions.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
