About me

Hello, I'm Wendy and I believe that everybody has the potential for self-improvement and I offer, as an integrative counsellor, empathy, compassion and a safe environment to help you to improve your personal well-being.

There are times when we all feel anxiety and stress and struggle to cope with the complex lives we lead today. I can work with you to help you to understand how you can overcome these feelings and make positive changes in your life.

How Counselling can help
Counselling can help you to cope on a day to day basis with the anxiety and stress everyday life can bring.  I work with clients with a range of issues including social anxiety,  low self-esteem,  relationships,  bereavement and loss.

Counselling can help you to recognise behaviours and unhelpful thoughts and feelings that can have a negative impact on your life.  I can help you to develop strategies to help you to understand and develop better relationships with other people and enhance your confidence and self-esteem.

It's really important for you to be comfortable with your choice of counsellor, I offer a free no-obligation telephone consultation to have an initial conversation and to answer any questions you may have. To arrange this please email me and I will contact you as soon as possible to arrange a convenient time.

Member organisations


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.
