Life may sometimes be hard, but it should never be impossible.
Welcome to my page. I am a BACP accredited counsellor, with over 20 years of practical experience: offering compassionate, effective counselling, tailored to the unique needs of each individual client. I am happy to conduct sessions in person, by phone or by Skype.
So many of our problems are rooted in the past: in coping mechanisms developed when we were young which no longer serve us, limiting our ability to live life fully and joyfully in the present.
My practice draws on humanistic approaches, the aim of which is to heal the whole person. Together we'll find the best way forward for you, to overcome distress, depression, self-limiting patterns of behaviour and discover a brand new paradigm for you to move forward in life, healthily, happily and with renewed confidence.
I would never claim to have all the 'answers', but I'll guide you in confronting the relevant and difficult questions. I'll listen and work with you, through your thoughts, feelings and issues: our one and only goal being, that you'll leave with renewed clarity and insights - enabling you to successfully tackle life's problems.
Helping you to develop an awareness of the patterns and beliefs driving your behaviours, empowering you to let go of the past and discover a greater range of choices in how you choose to deal with the present, and thrive in the future.

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)
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.
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.
