About me

I am a supportive and empathetic therapist who provides a safe, non judgemental and confidential environment for clients to explore their difficulties.

I believe that the experience of sharing difficult feelings; of being 'heard' and not judged can be liberating and empowering.

Counselling can help you understand why you think, feel and act like you do and help you create a design for living.

I offer a flexible appointment sysyem to accommodate clients including daytime, evening and weekend appointments. Home visits maybe possible with an uplifted fee.  Video sessions will continue to be available as they have proved to be very successful during the pandemic.

Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from The Manchester approved course by the BACP. Main modality Person Centred counselling but experience of Psychodynamics and CBT.

Volunteer at Fortalice, Women's Refuge for Domestic Abuse, experience in Addictions, Bereavement, Divorce and other Related emotional issues and Loss.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
