This is a very difficult period of time and one for which we have no model. Living with the changes to our lives created by Covid-19 can affect our sense of self and lead to anxiety. Relationships can also be put under strain by the current situation. Counselling provides a safe space to explore these difficulties and can give you a breathing space to think about your needs.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I qualified as a counsellor twelve years ago and became an accredited member of BACP in 2015 after more than 450 hours of supervised practice. This means that I can help you to find a way forward through your difficulties. Being heard and accepted can make such a difference. I will listen to your story in confidence, providing a non- judgmental space to explore your thoughts and feelings.
I can offer creative ways of working which include journal writing, and drawing. These creative techniques can help you to channel your feelings and also lead to new insights into your situation.
Anxiety is often helped by Mindfulness and breathing exercises. I work with Mindfulness techniques to calm the mind and help with managing worries.
I am experienced in working with children and young people as well as adults and I have worked in a range of settings including schools, a community counselling service and university. I am qualified and experienced in working both short and long-term.
If you would like to know more about the way I work and to discuss how counselling could help you or your family, please make contact and we can arrange a short conversation. You can contact me by leaving a message on my phone or email. I will aim to return your contact within 24 hours.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
