About me

PEACE of MIND, HAPPINESS and CONTENTMENT are hard to find and sustain in the world we live in today. Our hectic lifestyles, difficult relationships and pressures of modern living are taking their toll on us all; emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Our Journey to counselling may arise when we are faced with challenging and distressing times in our lives. Feeling ANXIOUS, DEPRESSED,STRESSED or SUFFERING with LOW SELF ESTEEM can be where therapy begins.We may have thoughts and feelings we are struggling to cope with and certain events are becoming overwhelming.

Once a trusting relationship is established it will allow us to work with your distress, enable you to become more self-aware and to make the right choices, for you, in your life.

My personal experience of life, work related stress and training allows me to offer you a time and a place where you can talk freely and experience a non judgemental approach. My location is very discreet and I place a high regard on confidentiality. My hope for you is that you will start to feel better about yourself and/or the situation you find yourself in.

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.
