I am a fully qualified counsellor and supervisor with many years experience in a variety of settings including NHS Primary Care, mental health organisations and private practice. I offer a person-centred, integrative approach according to individual needs, including trainee counsellors, couples and long-term or brief therapy.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have delivered professional counselling training in Higher Education settings for 23 years. I also provide Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction courses to health care professionals and I am a trained Shared Reading facilitator (The Reader Organisation).
I provide counselling and supervision in a quiet, comfortable setting conveniently situated for Keele campus and on a main bus route from Stoke and Newcastle. There is ample parking.

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.
