About me

As a qualified counsellor and lecturer my aim is to provide positive and solution-focused outcomes from therapy.

While I provide general counselling services, I specialise in working with children and young people who suffer from a broad range of mental health issues.  These include low mood, depression, anxiety, disordered eating and those affected by sexual abuse, as well as those on the autistic spectrum.

My core belief is that good therapy is an emotional as well as a financial investment.  My approach is therefore one of bespoke collaboration and regular assurance, involving the family as a whole wherever possible.

As a client, your therapeutic journey with me begins from our first point of contact, which is usually via email or telephone.  We will spend some time briefly discussing what you would like to gain from therapy before we arrange our first appointment, with plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions and establish if I am the right counsellor for you.

Please contact me to begin your journey.

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.
