About me

I am a level 7 counsellor qualified in Person centred and pro-active counselling. I offer 1-2-1 sessions to adults and specialise in counselling children and young people using creative therapy and person centred therapy.

I am fully insured and I am a registered member of the BACP. I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment for clients of all ages to explore their issues in depth. I also offer home visits, telephone counselling and online counselling.


Youth counselling:

If you think your child may need help I specialise in counselling children and young people. Counselling children and young people has an enormous impact in terms of the young person’s personal, social and emotional development. I make counselling accessible so young people and their families can get that much needed help.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
