About me

  • Anxiety & Depression - In Northern Ireland 1 in 5 of us will face a mental health problem sometime in our lives.
  • Low Self Esteem - most children suffer alone with a sense of worthlessness. Many become adults with the same loneliness and sense of defeat
  • Stress - one of the biggest problems causing absenteeism from school or lost days off work.
  • Addiction - whether with alcohol, drugs, food or gambling lives fall apart and families hurt.
  • Grief - Feeling alone or not understood after the loss of someone.
  • Life Transitions - often the most difficult part of life is fitting in after a significant move or change.
  • Trauma Related Issues - can result in the replay of unwanted horrible images, fear, isolation and harm.
  • Couples Counselling- every year more marriages have such difficulties they end in separation or divorce.
  • Anger Management - this is not a problem with being angry.  Everyone has the right to be angry.  It is more how you express anger and control it rather than it controlling you.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
