Experienced and Professional


I have a broad experience of life. I am a professional counsellor and psychotherapist. In addition to my private practice, I have worked as an Integrative Counsellor within the NHS, seeing a wide variety of clients, with issues such as generalised anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.  Until recently, I also worked for several years, for a charity specialising in pregnancy related issues such as miscarriage, still birth, post natal depression and infertility.

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Bristol. I update my training regularly.

I also have a B.A (Hons) from the University of Manchester.

I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework

I abide by its requirement to have continual professional development, in order that I am up to date with current research and techniques.

I have full Professional Indemnity Insurance.

I am registered with Counselling Directory

I am also registered with the BACP directory, www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk
