I am a fully qualified counsellor with 15 years experienced. I am also a qualified mindfulness and relaxation teacher and practitioner.
My approach is person-centred and integrative. This enables you to deal with your issues in ways that are best suited to you. This can also promote positive growth and self belief.
I also use mindfulness as this has shown to be an effective tool in addressing depression and anxiety.
I work privately with a wide range of diverse issues and for the NHS in a fertility clinic.
Counselling enables you to develop a clearer understanding of yourself and a better awareness of your emotional responses to personal, professional, physical or relationship difficulties. This process then can help you create better coping mechanisms and work on your personal development.
If you would like to find out whether this is the right approach for you, you can arrange an initial session with no commitment.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
