Update re: Corona Virus
We are currently experiencing uncertain times and its understandable to feel frightened and anxious. I just want to offer that I am still here and available to offer support, be it face to face counselling, online or on the phone.
I will be doing this whilst following advice from Public Health England so please be rest assured that I will be taking the necessary precautions.
If you have any questions at all, or want to consider online or telephone counselling as an alternative please get in touch and I will do my best to accommodate this for you.
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, struggling to cope? Are you feeling lost, uncertain, not sure who you are anymore?
Perhaps you find yourself functioning in life, but feel less engaged or surrounded by people but feel alone?
Maybe you are experiencing life as upward struggle? You feel drained and lack energy and motivation...
Who could possibly understand? You may feel like you are the only one and anticipate judgement and rejection from others. The fear of being labelled vulnerable or weak can feel like a huge barrier and prevent you sharing your feelings or seeking support.
I want to offer that you are not alone, to reach out and share that no matter how lost you feel right now, there is a way. I wholeheartedly believe it. Like you, I don’t have it all figured out but from my own experiences and personal struggles I understand how transformative counselling can be. The therapeutic relationship is wonderfully unique, providing a climate of safety in which to be truly heard, understood, and accepted.
It’s a connection that helps to develop trust in yourself to find the answers as the expert of your life and inner world. It is a space to pause, reflect and gain clarity. You may choose to give voice to the parts of you that are hidden, but this is always at your own pace and I will respect your process. I understand it is only when you feel fully heard and valued that you can take the risk in sharing your deeper thoughts & feelings and begin the process towards self-acceptance.
So a bit about me. I trained and work as a Person-centred psychotherapist because of my own experiences in therapy and I am proud of the time I have spent in the ‘client’ chair over the past years. I have worked with some amazing counsellors and I can quite honestly say this has been equally, if not more important than any academic course or books I have read.
However, I am a qualified Person-Centred Psychotherapist and have gained a BA in Counselling studies. I am also a fully registered member of The British Association in Counselling & Psychotherapy and work to the Ethical Framework and guidelines for Good Practice. I continually update my knowledge through Continuous Professional Practice and have a real love for working creatively, even though I have zero drawing skills! (I have been assured this isn’t important though).
The initial appointment will give you an opportunity to meet me, discuss your expectations of counselling and ultimately see if I am the right therapist for you. This is so important and I am okay in whatever you decide.
I very much look forward to meeting you.

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.
