About me

I am a BACP Accredited humanistic, person-centred counsellor. What this means is that I don’t direct the therapy and that I believe that relationships help us to heal and find a better path through life; so the relationship between counsellor and client is at the core of the way I work. This is why I always offer a first session free of charge. It gives you the chance to decide if I’m the counsellor for you (and if you decide not to come back, I don’t take it personally and will happily advise you on an alternative).

More specifically, I trained in the theories of Carl Rogers and if you would like to know more about that, I can send you my 10 page summary, “Carl Rogers in a Nutshell”.

If you work with me, you are the expert on what goes on in your head and in your life and my role is to help you explore whatever is troubling you and maybe see things from a different perspective.

I work full-time as a counsellor, primarily within the NHS and schools, but have extensive experience with adults.

I have a personal history of addiction and experience of the many issues associated with that. In my counselling I have worked with a variety of issues including substance misuse, self-harm, depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem and self-worth, existential crises, insomnia, food issues and relationship issues. I have also worked with people who have a variety of clinical diagnoses, including clinical depression, bi-polar,  neurodivergence, personality disorders, cancer and organ replacement.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Humanistic Counselling (Practice and Theory)
  • Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

I have a wide variety of post qualification development training but the best way to find out if I'm the counsellor who fits your needs is to contact me for an initial session. You be the judge.

But the issues I have worked with include Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem, Neuro-Divergent Conditions, the effects of the Menopause, Self-Harm, Eating Issues, Anger, Addiction and Substance Dependence, Bullying, Obsessive Compulsive behaviours, Relationships and Existential Issues.

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.

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.
