Counselling is an unfolding process where you embark upon a road of self discovery. Counselling will enable you to gain more insight into your relationships, whether this is your relationship to the world around you, to others or your relationship to yourself. I will support and work with you at your own pace in order to find your unique way forward. You may feel stuck and unable to move forward repeating old patterns of behaviour. Through exploring and working with your unconscious processes in the therapeutic space, I will work with you to gain greater insight and awareness into your self.

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.
