Life throws us Lemons, but it is what we do with them that counts.
We can suddenly find ourselves in situations that we feel are difficult to handle, and out of our control, this may be relationship problems or breakdown, a loss, redundancy or a trauma of some kind.
It may simply be that you feel you have lost your sense of direction but are not entirely sure why.
Whatever the situation, sometimes all we need is a good listening to, without any judgment or bias, so we are able to get life into perspective and start taking back control.
I offer you the space to do this, and together we can explore how you are feeling. I do this using some traditional Person Centred methods, which simply means this is centred around you, and you decide what you want to talk about. As the sessions progress, I will introduce Coaching methods, which looks at all aspects of your life, in order to increase self-esteem, self worth and confidence.
If you prefer to have a 30 minute introductory session, I offer these at a reduced rate, so that we can meet, and look at how and what you want to achieve, and ultimately, if you would like to share your journey with me.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
