I offer warmth, compassion and empathy as well as that I provide a welcoming place no matter your, culture, sex, race or disability. I also provide a safe and confidential place for you to explore what might be troubling you and I am there to listen and understand from a human perspective. In life, individuals will experience difficulties with their personal lives and also in their professional life and it is important to remember that you are not alone as help and support is available.
Life is full of ups and downs and so this can leave individuals to feel helpless, hopeless and fatigue. Sometimes you may feel that you have nobody to talk to or you may feel misjudged by your peers, friends and families. Your time and space will give you the opportunity to develop a sense of self by focusing on self-worth and acceptance. I understand that for a first-time meeting someone, it can be anxiety provoking and so before we make an agreement, I will give you the first session for half price. The first session will give you the opportunity to see whether you will need a different type of therapist or if you would like to continue short- or longer-term therapy.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

As an Integrative Counsellor and psychotherapist, I believe that every person is unique with their own experiences and feelings. In my therapy I choose to tailor the sessions according to the client's needs and that could be issues from the past or present. Whatever your needs are or adversities, it is about finding ways to move towards change and growth.
