I am an experienced counsellor and counselling supervisor, working in many aspects of mental health. I work for several organisation's. I am also a certified registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I believe that anyone can change if they want to. Through my therapy we will explore your thoughts and feelings and how this can affect your mental, physical and behavioural state and the consequences through this. The results can be life changing. Sometimes we can feel we have lost direction and so in therapy you can gain tools and insights to enable you to get back on track, give yourself choices to create opportunities when it may seem that there is none.
You will gain skills to manage stress, anxiety and unwanted behaviour's and build confidence and self esteem. I facilitate therapy that is simple and easy to follow. I can also teach you Mindfulness Meditation which is excellent for many mental health issues. To learn to simply let go... not to believe everything you think. I counsell individuals using C.B.T. Psychodynamic counselling and have an eclectic toolbox of methods to assist and develop individuals including EMDR.
I work office hours, Monday - Friday, and most evenings and a Saturday a.m. each week, but this can be arranged when we discuss your session as this can be flexible. l can visit you in the comfort of your own home.

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.
