About me

I work with clients who have issues such as: anxiety, depression, transitional life changes, loss and bereavement, behavioural change, low self-esteem, menopause and require stress management techniques.

As a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor I use difference modalities of counselling techniques including, Person-Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). 

I believe that the therapeutic relationship between the client and counsellor is key. Once in place, clients are able to explore issues which may be holding them back.  I like to think that I am warm and friendly, offering a confidential, non-judgemental safe space for clients to examine areas of concern in their lives.  

I am fully insured and as a registered member of the BACP, adhere to strict ethical guidelines and have personal supervision once a month.  This ensures my clients are getting the best possible treatment.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BSc. (Hons) degree in Psychology from the University of Liverpool, an MSc in Health Psychology, a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling and a Level 5 certification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).  I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have a history of volunteering for both Age UK and AJ and Friends.  My background is in the private sector.  I can offer face to face, video or telephone counselling, what-ever the client feels happier with.

I am also registered with WPA (Western Provident Association).

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
