I believe that counselling has the potential to make a real difference to people’s lives. My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe, confidential space in which you can explore your issues and really be listened to, without being judged. I will work with you to help you achieve a greater understanding of yourself and your situation, to alleviate your emotional distress, to facilitate change, find new perspectives and realise your full potential.
I work from home. My therapy room is a safe and comfortable space that is separate from the rest of the house. The location is quiet and private, with off road parking adjacent to the entrance. I offer daytime and evening appointments.
I am based in Warwickshire, in a location that is accessible for clients from that county as well as from Leicestershire, Staffordshire and West Midlands.
However, to ensure my services are fully accessible to all UK residents, I also provide telephone or online (Zoom) sessions.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
