I am a qualified Counselor and currently training with the NHS as a Psychological Well being Practitioner. The core of my working beliefs is centered around the needs of the client, I work with the material you choose to bring to each session. You are the expert in your life, I am there to help shine a light on areas that may be in the shadows. Often we struggle to understand the stresses and complications of life and at times when we do, it can become a bombardment of emotion that we just were not prepared for. I offer a genuine and non-judgmental environment and practice Person Centered Counselling to help move forward from these experiences in a way which still allows an individual autonomy
Is Counselling for You?
People often ask me who counselling is for and what would bring someone to counselling? My reply is always the same...anyone can attend counselling. There are no rule books that state a client must be experiencing certain characteristics in order to be eligible. Chances are if you are on this page reading you are already thinking about seeking help, don't be distracted and put it to the back of your mind. It's important we look after our mental well-being and dedicate some time every week to self care, recovery, exploration and any other reason you find yourself seeking a counselor.
How I Work
I acknowledge that every client is an individual and therefor each counselling session is treat as such, we work with the material you choose to bring to the session and go at a pace that both me as the counselor and you the client feel appropriate.
I am an Individual Member of the British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists which means I practice to a set of Ethical Guidelines protecting you as a client and myself as the Counselor.

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.
