About me

I am a qualified counsellor with over 15 years experience. I am accredited and registered member of the BACP.

I predominantly work in a Person Centred approach but I incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy if it would benefit you.

We all have times in our lives when things are difficult or something is causing distress and worry. It can help to talk, in confidence, to someone professional and experienced who won't make judgements, but will accept you for who you are. I offer a safe, secure space to look at what is causing you concern.

You can contact me via email, phone or text.
Our initial consultation will look at a brief overview of your concerns, your hopes and goals for the therapy and our compatability to work together. Each counselling session lasts up to an hour and are usually held weekly. I work long term and short term, to suit you. A limited number of appointments are available out of office hours including some evenings and Saturday morning.

I have extensive experience of working with all manner of issues.
I adhere strictly to BACP ethical code of practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
