About me

Welcome to my Practice.

My Experience and Approach

Life can become very hard to handle at times. It can feel tough, confusing and even out of control,  at any age or stage.  

I'm a humanistic and person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist with a track record of working with adult clients' anxieties, depression and emotional disturbances - the sort which can come from reacting to all life can throw at us.

My special interests are bereavement, loss and the associated trauma which can so often  turn lives upside down,  threatening our mental health;  but whatever your issues and circumstances,  I believe passionately,  and from lived experience,  that the right counselling relationship can help us work through and develop,  out of our problems and challenges.   

How I work

Let me build a trusting and foundational working relationship with you,  that helps you find truth, new perspective and meaning in your everyday life, your relationships, and your past, present and future experiences.

We will focus on what you bring to sessions and how you feel bringing it.  No feeling is too small to make a difference, or too much to begin to encounter.

We will work with close attention to determining the right therapeutic style and pace for you, bringing care and empathy to anything that emerges,  reviewing progress regularly. 

Whether you want to set goals for yourself,  or just explore and see what unfolds in this safe and positive environment,  please do contact me to find out more in a free half-hour introductory session. 

I look forward to talking to you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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

Other areas of counselling I deal with

The foundation of my therapeutic approach is the belief that you know best what is troubling you.  

I do not claim to be a specialist in any particular medical area; it's what your challenges mean to you that shapes how I approach working with you.
