I am a qualified integrative counsellor offering a confidential and understanding service for adults, children and young people who are facing a range of challenges and emotional difficulties.
There are many reasons why an individual seeks counselling, and I understand that it can feel like a big decision where you may feel nervous, uncertain or vulnerable.
My first step is to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space, where you will feel able to explore your own thoughts and feelings. This offers you space to understand the underlying feelings that can make you feel low, stuck, empty or overwhelmed. During our first interactions I will provide you with the information that you need to make an informed decision regarding your therapy. If you choose to continue then together, we can work through the areas you would like to explore at a pace that you are comfortable with.
I have been working with people in the public and voluntary sectors for over ten years, with focus around supporting those affected by domestic and/or sexual abuse. I have gained experience working with a variety of mental health challenges, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-harm, abuse and other traumas, addiction, bereavement/loss, stress, self-esteem, relationships issues amongst others. Understanding the impact that these experiences can have upon a person’s life has helped me develop a caring and empathetic approach to my work.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy to suit the needs of the individual.
I offer a free 30 minute initial telephone call, for us to explore your presenting concern and discuss what you would like to gain from your time in therapy.
You are welcome to contact me with any queries, however, the easiest way to get in touch is to email or text me your contact details and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
