MBACP Adhere to the strict ethical framework of the BACP.  I adhere to best practice and strict confidentiality of the BACP.  This also means I am committed to Continual Professional Development, which is a necessity and fully regulated by the BACP.

I have always had interest in understanding why we make sometimes have certain struggles and obstacles, and make the choices we do, and how we can be guided to make changes and be more fulfilled.   I have been involved in self-development and helping others in many different capacities for over 15 years. It is a huge privilege to be able to listen to and help others.  I continue my training and building my knowledge by doing Continuous Professional Development.  This is so that I can continue to build my experience and knowledge so that I can offer the best help possible.  This is also due to the fast moving and developing world we live in and the importance in keeping up with the most current and researched methods of the current day.
I work on a short term or long term basis depending on individual needs. This may be as little as 6-12 weeks for more current issues or leading to longer depending on the complexity of the issue/s. I offer Counselling on a one to one basis either face to face, over the telephone, online or on Skype.
