About me

I believe we have within ourselves all the necessary resources and knowledge to live a full and meaningful life. Counselling can provide the necessary conditions to re-establish that potential.

My work is firmly grounded in the Humanistic tradition of believing that you are the expert of your own lived experience. My role is to enquire, respectfully challenge and understand that perspective, which in turn can help to empower you in your everyday life.

How counselling can help.

​Counselling has the capacity to bring hope into everyday life by strengthening the belief in a better, more positive future.

Having the courage to be proactive in combating the problems that we all face in life enhances our chances of achieving a happier and more fulfilled life.

What to expect.

The initial consultation is to see if we feel we can work together therapeutically as well as to explore whether or not I am the right counsellor for your requirements. If we feel that you would be better suited to work with someone else I will endeavour to recommend an alternative counsellor.

Once you have made your decision we will find a convenient time and day to being counselling together. We will regularly review our sessions to make sure that you are getting what you want from the counselling. I offer long term as well as short term counselling depending on your needs.

How to get started.

Please feel free to make contact via email or phone with any queries or questions you may have, or to book a no-obligation half an hour initial consultation.

I have various daytime and evening appointments available so we will be able to find a time and day that suits your needs.

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.

Accredited register membership
