About me

Are you tired of listening to that constant self critical voice I can help you practise turning it off.

Life can be disappointing .You may feel like all the dreams you had in your youth have come to nothing.

Counselling can help you start on a road to self acceptance. You can realise and unleash your self potential. You can begin to feel hopeful about the future.

You can begin to find compassion for yourself. You can develop gratitude, treasure your life and start to take care of your own needs.

You can find better way to communicate and improve your relationships.

With experience of bereavement counselling I am able to support you during these very testing times.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am now currently back to providing face to face counselling.
