A safe place to be honest and open, to learn more about your thoughts and feelings and work in partnership with someone whilst doing so are what you will find when you have counselling with me.
As a Person Centred Counsellor I will spend time finding out what you respond well to, find most helpful and benefit from to be sure to include this in your counselling sessions whilst allowing you to talk freely, as well as using other methods such as creative work, more directed tasks or completing various tasks together.
It can be incredibly overwhelming trying to find the right counsellor for you and for this reason I offer everyone a short, free telephone call for you to get a better feel of who I am as well as ask any questions. There is no obligation to book any counselling following this and if you do, there is no set amount of how many sessions you must have.
Please get in touch by email, text or calling (please do leave a message if I can’t answer) to begin your counselling journey.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
