If you feel it is time to take the step into talking through some of the challenging experiences that have caused you a sense of psychological distress, then I can offer you support. As a predominantly Person Centred Counsellor, my aim is to understand the issues that cause discomfort from your point of view.
I am fully qualified and have had many years supporting individuals with emotionally challenging circumstances. I see myself as a facilitator and hope to work with you by giving a safe and confidential space to talk and explore your experiences.
As well as offering this service, I also enjoy the creative elements of therapy and encourage, where appropriate, creative exploration and expression.
I am particularly passionate about supporting those that have experienced pregnancy loss. I am aware that the impact of losing a pregnancy can affect a number of people and that support can be difficult to access.
I also advocate supporting young people and individuals who have additional needs. I have over twenty years experience supporting young people and adults with learning difficulties, including teaching within a college setting. I would especially love to hear from you if you have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and help you embrace new ways to support communication by giving you a space to express yourself unconditionally.
Please note, due to the current pandemic, I can only offer sessions via Zoom; however, I have found that these have still been productive and beneficial. Many are finding that communication is now, more than ever, a vital tool for positive mental health.
I look forward to hearing from 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.
