About me

Relationship issues, stress at work, family issues, bereavement, financial problems, struggling with anxiety or depression, lacking confidence or is life just getting you down?

At times, life’s challenges can become overwhelming and you may find yourself feeling sad, depressed, lost, anxious, fearful or stressed by circumstances in your life that seem out of control. It’s not easy to ask for help or to take the first step in contacting a counsellor. Perhaps it is a decision you have thought about for some time, or perhaps you have recently realised something needs to change in your life. Maybe you’re not sure why you are feeling this way or even what it is you’re feeling.

Over the course of your lifetime, you may face obstacles that require you to deal with change.  It can be very difficult to navigate through these transitional periods let alone deal with the various emotions that arise.

Major life transitions such as separation, divorce, relationship issues, financial loss, redundancy, bereavement, or ill-health can result in feelings of sadness, fear, uncertainty or of being alone.

Maybe the feelings you are dealing with are not resulting from a major life transition. Perhaps you have always lacked confidence, feared social situations, lacked direction, struggled with anxiety or depression.

Therapy is a place for you to focus on yourself; your worries, fears, and frustrations. Transforming your life begins with awareness of your current experiences and unravelling complex feelings and emotions so that you can begin to understand and make sense of why you feel the way you do.

As an integrative counsellor, I will combine various therapeutic strategies, and work with you to determine the best approach guided by your individual needs. I employ a variety of approaches including, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Person-centred and Psychodynamic approaches. By understanding the reasons for your challenges we can work together and uncover your hidden strengths and identify your goals.

Respect, trust, empathy and discretion are at the heart of my practice.

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.

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.
