About me

Are you 18-25 years old? Are you feeling anxious? Feeling more stressed and worried about things because of the pandemic? Are you depressed? Do you need to talk through a problem? Having relationship difficulties? Want to make sense of an experience? Low self-esteem? Do you need some coping strategies? If the answer is yes to any of these, please get in touch

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist who can help you make sense of how you are feeling in a confidential, non-judgmental space and can give you useful tools and techniques to support you.  By exploring together your current and past experiences and looking at unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns, we will positively change your mental health and emotional wellbeing.

I offer short term, a fixed number of sessions or longer term therapy.  Sessions take place weekly, at the same time.  Sessions last 50 minutes.

E-mail, whatsap, text or call me if you would like to arrange a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss what is bringing you to counselling and to ask any questions you may have before arranging our first session.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
