About me

What I can help with

I offer counselling to adults, couples and young people in a safe and confidential manner. This can be in either my meeting room or in your own home, wherever you feel most comfortable .  This will give you a safe space in which you can share any issues that may be impacting on your personal and/or your professional life.

We will work together to understand what you can do to address your worries and anxieties to enable you to get to where you want or need to be.

As an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor I use a variety of techniques combining different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit your personal needs.

Person Centered Counselling allows us to work together specifically dealing with whatever you are comfortable with sharing. This kind of therapy addresses general anxieties, dissatisfaction with life, difficulties coming to term with painful past events, relationship difficulties, bereavement or illnesses.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy helps change the way you think and behave, focussing on the "here and now". This is helpful for; anxiety, anger issues, depression, stress and phobias.

Psychodynamic Counselling aims to help bring to the surface your true feelings. Helpful for, dealing with problems from the past.

I believe that the counselling relationship is based on trust and understanding.

I look forward to hearing from you. I am able to offer appointments day time or evenings.

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.
