Due to current Government requirements all sessions will be done online instead of face to face. There are various options for this. Please ask for more details.
People enter counselling for many different reasons and each person’s issues are unique. My focus is always on you and what you feel you want to bring into the counselling room.
I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor who has experience in various aspects of counselling. I work with individuals and couples and my main areas of work include, but are not limited to:
- Sexual Issues
- Self Harm
- Eating Disorders
I have an honest and open approach to my work. I strive to provide a confidential, supportive and safe space where you can discuss and explore your personal choices, behaviours, feelings and beliefs, all without fear of judgement, reproach or discrimination. I will help you make choices and changes, not make them for you. All sessions are tailored to your needs and allow you to explore your feelings in a time-frame you are comfortable with.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the College of Sexual and Relationship therapists (CORST) and work within their code of ethics.

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.
