At various stages in our lives there are times when we struggle to make sense of things, past events may prevent you from coping with day to day life?
Do you need someone to listen without judgement, to assist in your exploration?
A counselling relationship provides a safe environment in which we can establish a secure place to explore issues that may be preventing you from leading a more fulfilling life, support and encouragement whilst exploring ways to facilitate health and growth.
I provide a warm and professional counselling service to individuals, children and young people.
To seek help requires a leap of faith,and I never underestimate the courage it takes to make this leap!

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
