About me

Do you have relationship issues? I am an experienced Relate Trained Couples Counsellor and I can help with a wide range of relationship difficulties. I am person centred and work in collaboration with my clients to help them find a way to improve their relationships. I also work with couples when one person may be on the Autistic Spectrum, whether diagnosed or not.

I work with individuals and couples with a range of issues including depression and anxiety. I am happy to accompany clients struggling with life questions, feeling stuck and seeking to find a direction. I can also offer support to bereaved clients and have seven years experience of working with Cruse Bereavement Care.

If you are troubled or struggling with life and feel that no-one understands, give yourself and opportunity to talk through your concerns with me, I am a supportive and patient listener and I can help you explore your issues, resolve them, and find a way forwards

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Biographical Counselling, I am a registered Relate practitioner, with ten years experience and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have five years experience of working in a GP surgery, and seven years experience of working as a bereavement counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care

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.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
