Feelings sad, anxious, depressed, stuck or just overwhelmed? Such feelings can get in the way of your fulfilment and happiness. My aim to work with you with therapeutic intention, listening with kindness and without judgement in an environment of warmth and acceptance that can be empowering helping you to find a way forward and heal.
As a BACP registered qualified counsellor, my training was person-centred but I am able to use other methods towards a mind- body connection that can help you towards a more holistic understanding of yourself towards empowerment and healing. As a mindfulness practitioner, I would welcome those who would like to explore their story through particular spiritual tradition/beliefs that can help you to make sense of how you have lived and what you might like to change.
Finding a right therapist can be the key and in the first meeting, I will provide a safe and confidential environment giving you opportunity to experience how we might work together and what support I can provide you with in relation to your focus and goals. By asking questions about your past life and present will be able to help me to identify if I am best suited to help you.
I look forward to speaking to you and offer a free initial chat in which I will answer any questions you might have and how we can work together towards your goals.

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.
