Highly experienced qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist , Supervisor. Offering on-line therapy during the Covid outbreak. I have over twenty-five years experience of offering psychotherapy/counselling and other types of help for people in difficulties or distress. I provide a warm and genuine environment in which you can be supported, and explore any stresses or issues you want to discuss. I will help you to identify whatever is in the way of you leading a happier, more fulfilling life.
You can talk in confidence with me about any issues. I am experienced in all areas including generalised anxiety, depression, panic, separation and divorce. I am non discriminatory and work with all sexualities and genders.
Counselling with me is likely to help you to make better choices in the future, or to feel more at ease in your current life. I am non-judgemental and non discriminatory. We are all different and we all need to be understood for who we are. I will seek to understand you and to help you make the changes you choose for a happier life. I hope you will decide to give this a try, and if you do I will look forward to meeting with you.

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.
