About me

I know it can be difficult to ask for help and meet someone new.I will do everything I can to make the process straightforward and welcoming .I provide professional person centered counselling for those who want effective and accessible support.
I am a qualified Counsellor, Mental Health Therapist, ADHD Nurse and Registered Mental Health Nurse. I have worked in the NHS for over 35 years. I now have my own private practice & work as a Counsellor in local Schools.
I have unparalleled experience working with children, young people & adults. I
have worked with McMillan Palliative & Bereavement Service & CRI with clients & families affected by Alcohol & Drugs.

I work within the BACP and NMC codes of ethics and receive regular supervision,giving you reassurance that I am an ethical professional practitioner .I also carry professional indemnity insurance and I have an enhanced police disclosure.

I believe in the person centred ethos; that everybody, given the right environment, has the ability to grow. I offer clients a safe, non judgmental & confidential environment to explore their problems, allow them to make changes, heal old wounds, make peace with the past, & accept & embrace who they are.

I feel it is important to offer flexibility according to my clients needs. I work with a wide range of clients issues and I feel the most important aspect of successful therapy is the relationship between client and counsellor.

My style is warm and supportive.I will work with you to help find yourself in a new and insightful way.I believe that one size does not fit all,that is why I employ a variety of evidence based treatments to meet your individual needs.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

What to expect in your first session

To give new clients peace of mind, I always use the first meeting as a chance for us to both find out whether we’ll work well together. Therefore our initial session of 30 minutes is completely free.

In this first session we will discuss your expectations from counselling and what, as a trained counsellor, I can help you with.

I will explain ethical issues with you such as contracting and ethical boundaries. We will also discuss practical issues such as the best times for and frequency of the sessions.

It is important for you to find out how comfortable you feel working with me.

For the duration of our work together I will be focused on being your therapeutic partner.I will support you with respect and empathy.for as long as it is of benefit to you.

A brief experience may be sufficient for you to achieve clarity and relief.Or it may be that you wish to continue on and explore your experiences more deeply .The frequency will vary according to your unique needs.

Now you know how I work take the next step and please contact me for an initial chat.
