As a humanistic therapist I'm on your side, I've got your back. Together we'll explore how you got to where you are now. I'll encourage you to let go of what's holding you back, be it fear, guilt, shame, to help you move on with your life.
If you are nervous about seeking help then I am the therapist for you. Compassion and understanding are at the core of my practice.
Fees are £45 per session, £25 for an initial consultation.
We can start with 6 weekly sessions with the option to carry on for as long as you would like.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), this provides me with a water-tight ethical framework to work by.
I've been working as a therapist for about 6 years and have worked with lots of clients with a range of presenting issues. See the issues I work with below.

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).
