If you think I could help, contact me by phone or email and then we can discuss the next step. All calls and messages are confidential. BACP and UKRCP Accredited Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist bound  by the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice and subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure.

The adults I counsel will experience:

*     Empathy: pursuing a process of picking up on your feelings as if I was you

*     Warmth: adopting a respectful attitude, devoid of judgement, devoid of power imbalance.

*     Genuineness: adopting a particular way of being i.e. open, transparent, being myself, avoiding presenting a façade or acting with contrivance. In doing so, I communicate that it is not only permissible but it is desirable to be you.


Through these conditions clients begin to prize themselves, often the first

“step through the door” to a new way of being.


My main practitioner training was the BACP-accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling at Manchester University. I can integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is the preferred method of treatment for anxiety and depression in the National Health Service. More research has been conducted into the effectiveness of CBT than other therapeutic modalities, and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends it for treatment of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
