About me

Have you been feeling low, anxious, short tempered or close to tears more than you normally would? Is this causing difficulties in your relationships with partners, family, friends or at work?                                                                                I have been a counsellor for over 22-years and a supervisor for 18

I can provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space to explore your life and help you find your way to make the changes you want.

Counselling can help you gain an understanding of why this is happening.  Give you tools to manage things differently and empower you to find your way to have the life you want.

If you would like to know more about the way I work please email, phone or text and I will happily answer any questions you may have

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experianced therapeutic counsellor and supervisor. Working with individuals and couples on both a short and long term basis and an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work according to their Ethical Framework and Guidelines.

Member organisations

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.
