About me

Life is challenging and sometimes  leaves us wondering what to do next. I offer support for anyone with concerns around anxiety, depression, sudden or ongoing issues with relationships or other instances more personal to you. These might be issues at home, with partners or family, at work or in friendships, a recent loss or longer. Perhaps taking some time talking through your concerns in a space away from day to day life will be helpful. These may be happening now or feel ongoing and repeated.  We will start with what you bring along to the sessions by looking at the here and now and explore any past experiences that may feel relevant.  

I understand there are many possibilities for deciding on counselling. This might be some need for change or difficulty with an unexplained change. It may not be completely clear and could require some uncovering.  Whatever your motivation I  offer warm, calm and confidential assurance to encourage you to consider your thoughts and feelings and take some time to work towards finding new perspectives, understanding and meaning for you. 

I offer both long and short term therapy that we will review together as we move through the session at a pace best for you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
