About me

Are you ready to change how you feel?

Are you experiencing overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety, depression and loneliness?

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Lecturer in counselling. I work integratively with Adults and children allowing us to explore a number of approaches including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Personal Construct Theory and Transactional Analysis.


I offer a non judgemental safe place allowing us to work together to make the changes in your life that you so desire.

In my role as a psychotherapist I  have been blessed and privileged to experience life changing moments with individuals, I believe we are all capable of achieving theses moments through the counselling process no matter how difficult that may seem at the moment.

Our counselling sessions will be empowering, liberating and can be life changing, giving you the opportunity you to gain the confidence to make positive changes to uncover your full potential.

Working alongside each other we will work towards resolving any issues, thoughts and behaviours that are holding you back such as depression, addictions, anxiety, low self esteem, bereavement, abuse,anger management, self harm, low self confidence and relationship issues, OCD, panic disorders, family issues, phobias, feeling sad, anger issues and much more whilst in the process giving you a better understanding of yourself through self awareness.

I work one on one offering us a confidential, safe, comfortable and accessible space.  I offer a genuine an accepting relationship where you are free to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours without judgement.

Thank you for looking at my profile, if you have questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

My focus is to help you heal, energize, and become aware of your inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, therapeutic relationship, listening to your concerns, and customizing a working alliance to empower and make changes in your life.   I believe we all have the power and strength to change if so desired, I have experienced this from working alongside the most courageous people in my counselling room.

Contact is your 1st step towards change and the hardest, we can have an initial meeting free of charge were you can decide if you would like to work with me and we can discuss and explore whether I would be the best counsellor or supervisor to suit your requirements. Integrity, humility, sincerity and honesty are vital in a counselling role and if I am not the best counsellor or supervisor for you I will attempt to refer you to a professional colleague

Please feel free to call me for an informal chat or email me with any questions.

I am fully insured and have a current DBS

My room has disabled access

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
