I offer you a safe, supportive space to explore whatever problems and issues you want to bring to counselling. I have experience of counselling on a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties/endings, transgender and sexuality, trauma, addiction and abuse.
I believe that, given the right conditions, we can all find a way out of our difficulties and through our pain, to find a place in the world where we are comfortable. But at times, seeing a way forward and believing that things can get better can feel impossible. This is where counselling can help.
As a psychotherapist, I listen and try to understand the difficulties from your point of view. This can help you see things more clearly, understand more about yourself and 'move on' from difficult and painful experiences.
Our work together might be short term, perhaps a few sessions working towards a specific goal, or longer term, perhaps exploring painful issues that have been there for a long time. Whatever feels right for you.

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).
