About me

Counselling can help you to feel less isolated and overwhelmed with whatever you are struggling with.  It can help you to move through fear, grief, loss , shame and find peace, acceptance and joy.  Counselling can help you build your own resources,  find solutions to problems, increase your self compassion, improve communication  navigate conflict, resolve the legacy of trauma, reduce anxiety and lift mood.  This is not an exhaustive list.  I believe that you will get from counselling what you most need.
My aim is to offer a safe space where you feel accepted and comfortable enough to explore the difficult and painful things without being overwhelmed by them.  Sincerity, empathy and compassion characterise my work. I believe that we all have the resources within us to overcome the struggles we face, to make the changes where we can and to accept what cannot be changed. We will work at your pace, trying to make sense of your experiences and creating the changes that you are wanting.

If you have any questions or would like to make an initial appointment, I’d be really pleased to hear from you.

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.
