There are times in our lives when we find it difficult to make sense of why we feel anxious, troubled or distressed.
As an Integrative Counsellor I use a variety of counselling approaches which are determined by you and your presenting problem. I will provide you with a safe, non judgemental environment where we can explore together the issues or difficulties you may be facing. Your counselling sessions are an opportunity not only to understand why things are difficult, sad or painful but also for personal growth so that you can make positive changes in your life. The counselling service I am offering is professional, confidential and discrete.
The initial appointment gives you the opportunity to meet me, to talk about what has prompted you to seek counselling and to decide if counselling is for you. It is the time to ask any questions you may have about the service I am offering.
Sessions will be 50 minutes long. We may work on a long or short term basis.
Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email. I will be happy to talk to you about my therapeutic approach and answer any questions you may have.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees start from £45 per session. I am happy to discuss a discounted fee for students both for counselling and supervision.
I am a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have passed the BACP's Certificate of Proficiency and therefore I am also listed on the BACP's Voluntary Accredited Register.
