We start with what you bring...
Are you experiencing anxiety, panic or psychological distress?
My work focuses on gently exploring what is going on for you, without any judgement. I can help you where you are at with it all, and what or who has led you to this moment. I offer you the space to be heard and together we'll find a way forward, starting with what you bring.
You may be feeling scared of symptoms which may include, but is in no way limited to, the inability to think and find a way out from where you are, negative thoughts, flashbacks, physical symptoms, inexplicable pain, emotional dis-regulation and feeling overwhelmed, or no feelings at all.
I can help, I practice as an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor, this means our sessions create a unique place to explore what is going on for you through a tailored approach to guide you through your experience. You are key to understanding you, I know how to help you navigate this time in your life.
Integrative Therapy can bring about a deeper understanding of who you are, resulting in new choices becoming available from our work together - perhaps before you were feeling overwhelmed, numb, stressed, scared or depressed.
I can help you, so please call me to have a chat.
Sometimes life can be daunting with unresolved losses and bereavement, separation and anxiety. You may be feeling overwhelmed by the demands of modern life and driven by behaviour you can't shift.
" It's not my past that's a problem it's my everyday."
You maybe experiencing addiction or repetitive thoughts and actions that have stopped you from fulfilling your sense of self. Whatever you bring, whatever has brought you here, I will be here, and hear you without judgement.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
From £30.00 to £60.00
Free initial telephone or online session
Concessions offered for
My fee is £60 per hour.
I offer discounts and offers if you were to book sessions in advance; for example if you were to book a block of 6 session, you would only pay for the price of 5 and so on. I do operate a sliding scale for clients which is income related - this can be discussed with each client.
I also encourage a pay it forward pricing policy, so if you find my services of help, you may want to support other less financially able to access my services.
I like to collaborate with clients to help them find a time which enables them to work consistently.
