You may be thinking about getting in touch but feeling uncertain as to whether counselling is for you. There may be particular experiences, recent or in the past, which you are struggling to cope with; bereavement, divorce, redundancy or other major life event. Perhaps things just don’t feel right and you don’t understand why.
I offer a safe and confidential environment where you are free to explore what is troubling you without fear of judgement.
I can support you to gain insight into how early experiences and significant events in your life might be affecting you in the present, helping you to see things from a different perspective and discover ways of bringing about positive changes in your life.
Specialisms include counselling for bereavement and loss.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy).
I am qualified in Psychodynamic Counselling which forms the foundation of my practice and I work to the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and its' Professional Conduct Procedures.
In addition I have undertaken further specialist training in Bereavement Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
In parallel with private practice I have worked in a local hospice, counselling adults experiencing grief and loss following the death of loved ones.
I also worked for several years in a local counselling centre supporting adults experiencing a variety of emotional difficulties including anxiety, anger, depression, stress and the effects of trauma.
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.
