Corona Virus Update: My counselling sessions with current and new clients are continuing throughout the social isolation phase, using video links such as Face-time, Skype, Zoom etc. I am also seeing clients face to face in my counselling room.
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor with extensive experience of working with adults, couples, young people and families.
Everyone experiences trauma in life and at times it can feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Past and present stresses such as bereavement, abuse, family breakdown, self harming and depression can feel overwhelming and effective counselling can help a person to regain control of his or her life.
The relationship between the client and counsellor is paramount to therapy's being effective. I am qualified, experienced, confidential, good humoured and above all, enthusiastic and dedicated to counselling.

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 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).
