Are you finding yourself repeating the same patterns, feeling stuck or unhappy with your current circumstances, feeling anxious, overwhelmed and struggling to make sense of things,? Counselling can help you explore these issues in a supportive environment.
I specialise in working with both teenage and adult anxiety and anxiety disorders and have extensive experience working with depression, low mood and self esteem.
I use different therapeutic approaches depending on the stage of life that the issues began to arise and the therapy I offer is tailored to suit your specific requirements. I hold the belief that with the right support we all have the capacity to change and to reach our full potential.
I offer short term solution focused therapy as well as long term open ended counselling and this can be discussed and then reviewed throughout our work together. I work with individuals aged 10 upwards and offer telephone and online counselling.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
