I am an Accredited Person Centred Counsellor.
"When life gets tough we often put on a mask so the rest of the world assumes we are fine, despite the turmoil we are suffering inside which can lead to being stuck with our inner struggles"
As a person centred counsellor I adapt my working style to meet the needs of my clients, providing a non judgmental, calm and confidential environment in which clients can explore their feelings at a pace that suits them.
Everybody is different one size does not fit all. By adapting to each person individually it gives the opportunity to explore the inner feelings, values and beliefs, in order to find the resources to gain the clarity needed to move forward making informed decisions.
I work from Royston Complementary Health Centre in Royston, which provides a very relaxed but confidential setting, which enables clients to feel at ease.
Some of the areas in which I have worked are as follows:
- Relationship issues
- Family Issues
- Bereavement / Loss
- Eating Disorders
- Self Esteem
- Domestic Violence
- Sex Addiction
- Pre & Post Opp concerns
- Many life Struggles.
Just because something is not on the list doesn't mean we can't work together.

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.
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.
