Counselling, a step in the right direction
Are you experiencing difficulties In your life and need someone to talk to about how you are feeling?
Needing help and support through challenging times?
I am a qualified, experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist with experience in a wide range of issues from depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, low self-esteem, anger and bereavement. Counselling could help you understand these problems and help you work with them in a more constructive way.
I work with adults on a one to one basis taking a Psychodynamic approach which recognises that present difficulties may stem from earlier life experiences. In addition to this approach I also work within an Integrative model which includes aspects of Systemic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). By using different theoretical models, I will be working in a way which I feel is suited to your individual needs and difficulties. I offer long and short-term therapy to suit each individual person and their needs in a confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment.
I understand that taking that first step towards receiving help can often be daunting and difficult. If you feel that counselling is something you would like to consider, please feel free to make contact by either telephone or email to arrange a mutually convenient time for an assessment. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your needs and to see if counselling is right for 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.
