I am a therapist offering a safe, confidential and supportive space where together we can explore issues, thoughts and behaviours that may be concerning you, and that you may feel are preventing you from getting as much out of life as you would like.
Therapy provides an opportunity for us to work together to look at areas where you may be struggling and address current concerns in a meaningful way. If you are happy to, we can look at how previous events and patterns may be affecting you now. Looking at your thoughts and feelings can help you take that first step towards greater self awareness and clarity in your life, so that you can make choices in the future.
I have experience of working with adults, adolescents and children and in a non-judgemental space I put the relationship at the heart of the therapy, taking the time you need to focus on what you want to explore. I use an integrative approach that draws on a variety of perspectives and ideas that allows me to meet your particular needs.
In our initial appointment we can discuss you're expectations, and if short term or more open ended work might be more helpful.
I am a trauma informed and EMDR therapist working with PTSD, bullying and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

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.
