Are there times in life, when you may feel overwhelmed, anxious and you struggle to understand what is happening within your life. You may want to share your thoughts and feelings, but are unsure where to turn.
As a qualified Integrative counsellor, my aim is to support you in your journey of what has led you to counselling at this point in your life. within our counselling sessions, I will work at your pace, supporting you to share only what you are comfortable with. During our work there may be occasions where I gently challenge you, this is to encourage you to think from another perspective. I adopt a variety of skills and techniques in my work with clients.
I have fifteen years experience of working with children in an educational setting.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore the various difficulties you might be experiencing.

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.
