About me

Hello, I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP and ACC. I offer a friendly, professional counselling service in a confidential setting.  As a counsellor I am accepting, genuine and understanding. I am passionate about my work as a counsellor and through my experience I have found it a privilege to be a part of my clients journey.

I will listen to you as you explore your situation without judgement or offering you advice, allowing you to express yourself freely. This often helps you to understand yourself and make sense of your situation.

Counselling is not a quick fix but a process that can take time and be hard work. I will support you on this journey and work at your pace as you find your peace or reach your goals.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves"
                                              Victor Frank

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
