About me

I am a therapeutic counsellor with a genuine and warm character.  We all face challenges in our lives and people engage in counselling for many different reasons at various life stages.  Whether you are currently facing a crisis, a longer term issue or feeling stuck and wanting to make changes.  I can offer you a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space to explore your current issue.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I drawn on many different theoretical approaches and skills in order to work with my clients in a way that best suits them and their desired outcomes.  I work with both individuals and couples on either a short fixed term, or longer term basis.

I am currently offering online, telephone and face-face sessions.  If you are considering counselling do not hesitate to give me a call/send an email and we can arrange an initial session where we can discuss your needs in more detail.

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

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).
