UPDATE Online and telephone counselling now available.
By knowing ourselves better, we are better able to live more honestly and productively and cope with life's difficulties. This enables us to recognise and acknowledge what we can control, while also learning to accept what we can’t.
Counselling helps us tolerate life’s ups and down better, to enhance our self-knowledge, improve our relationships, and give up old habits and repetitions that no longer work for us.
Working collaboratively, I will help you find your own answers, so that you can be more constructive in the ways that you manage your feelings and behaviour and can live life more fully, freely and meaningfully.
Counselling can help
If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression or finding it hard to cope.
If you have experienced any kind of loss, bereavement or trauma.
If you are struggling with personal or family relationships.
If you are having problems adjusting to change, perhaps through redundancy, retirement or illness.
If you are facing a problem that is hard to talk about.
or if you have a more general negative feeling about life and don't understand why.
Making a start
It is understandable that making the first call or sending the first email may feel difficult. After a first contact by phone or email, we can arrange an initial meeting, without obligation, whether it is online, by telephone or face-to-face, where we can explore together whether counselling is right for you, and whether I am the right person for you.
Counselling sessions are weekly, last for 50 minutes and cost £50. I do have a few spaces for assisted-place counselling at reduced cost
Evening appointments are available.

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.

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).
