If you're feeling upset or unhappy, I'll do my best to be there, and understand. If things feel too much right now, I can work with you at a pace that feels right for you. If you're lost, confused, or sad right now, that's okay. You can explore what's going on and speak freely in the session - you'll be accepted as you are. You, your experiences, thoughts and feelings, matter. I'll be there with you as you explore what's going on. You might not be where you want to be right now, and might not feel your best. That's okay. The acceptance and support offered through therapy might help you to start feeling a bit better.
I'll try to understand you and your experiences as best I can, from your perspective. I offer freedom for you to explore what you need to in a way that feels comfortable for you. In the safe and confidential space I offer, you might feel able to share or explore things you can't with other people. You'll be heard and understood, wherever you are right now.
It's sometimes daunting to seek support, and maybe you're used to coping alone. If and when you want to seek support, I am here for you. It's understandable to have questions or concerns about the therapy process. I'll respond quickly to your therapy query, doing my best to put your mind at ease. It's an important first step, and I'm here when you're ready.

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.
