About me

You are important.

Are you feeling the pressures of life? Perhaps you need support and understanding with the anxieties life often brings. It can be incredibly tough; feeling as though you're on your own, or that those around you don't understand. Maybe you don't want to share your thoughts and feelings with those closest to you...

During our session, you will find a relaxed, safe and confidential environment. We can explore together; where you are, discover the changes you would like to make and look at how you can put the foundations into place, to make those changes real.

You may have already gone through some significant changes and could be feeling overwhelmed. I can help and encourage you to discover a better sense of well-being. You will be heard, without being judged.

My person-centred approach, means that the therapy I offer is not directive; I won't advise you, but I will listen, offer confidentiality, respect, empathy and warmth. I am with you in the session, not leading you. I will by no means judge you. I will offer challenges to help you move and grow.

You won't go home with instructions, but you will go home knowing that you have instant support and trust in your newly established, therapeutic relationship.

Sessions can be arranged at a time to suit you - daytime / evenings.

Training, qualifications & experience

BACP Accredited Counsellor, qualified since 2012, I am thankful to have worked with many special people, each one unique in their own right.

I have gained experience as a therapist working for the NHS, St. Rocco's Hospice, within EAP and at home. My experience tells me that whatever the presenting issue might be, sessions usually bring many other areas to the surface; each one is worked upon, as our relationship evolves, trust is built, and more importantly when you are ready.

For reference, I gained my Diploma from the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) at The Cheshire Therapy Centre, Warrington.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
