Hello! I strongly believe that counselling should be specific & meet the reason that has brought you to therapy. Being an accredited Integrative counsellor, I will draw from different approaches to tailor your therapy to meet & achieve your goals. I will work collaboratively with you; I will not 'tell you' what to do. There are so many reasons people come to therapy. My aim is to build a strong therapeutic relationship with you in a safe environment where you can talk freely without fear/judgement. You will feel respected, valued & understood. All the elements which aim to ensure that therapy is effective & meaningful for you.
I understand deciding on a therapist might be daunting and can feel like a big decision, so I offer and recommend a short telephone chat, which allows you to gain a sense of whether you would like to work with me. Some of my experience includes working with: anxiety, panic attacks, attachment issues, trauma, domestic abuse as well as control and coercion.
I work with clients who are 16 years or over, so if you are experiencing anything that is causing you distress, then together we can explore and resolve those feelings. Seeking counselling doesn't have to be due to a mental health crisis. Life events and changes can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety.
Daytime, Evening and Weekend sessions available.
Training, qualifications & experience
My role as a counsellor has given me the privilege to work with adults from diverse age groups, cultures and backgrounds.
Some of my experience includes but not limited to, working with: anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, domestic abuse as well as control and coercion.

National Counselling Society (NCS)
The National Counselling Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.

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).
