In these challenging times you may be experiencing anxiety, struggling to make sense of your world while coping with existing emotional issues. I understand how difficult this can be and offer a safe, confidential space where we can explore the issues or events that have led you to seek counselling.
With nearly 15 Years professional experience, I offer my clients the opportunity to explore issues that may be painful or challenging, helping you discover a new perspective and a more fulfilling way of living, in a way which provides non-judgemental support and encouragement.
At various stages in our lives we can struggle to make sense of things, whether in our relationships, working lives, due to bereavement or any major life event. This can result in feelings of anxiety, low self esteem, depression and lack of motivation and energy. We may feel our relationships are in crisis and cannot see a way through.
To seek help requires a leap of faith and I never underestimate the courage it can take to make that leap. I will support you on your journey.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and give you further details over the telephone. Please use my confidential answerphone to leave a message and a convenient time to call you, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

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
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).
