Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed? Are you faced with a situation that is making you question who you are and what you need? At times like this we could all do with a helping hand, but it is not always easy to ask for that support. Whether you have a specific issue or ongoing problems that are affecting your life, I am here to help.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor working with adults and children, providing support for a variety of issues ranging from anxiety and depression to loss and chronic pain.
I offer a safe, confidential and understanding space for you to focus on yourself; something that many of us find difficult to do in today's fast-paced society. I am not here to tell you what to do but to work alongside you in reaching your desired outcomes.
Working integratively means that I use a range of therapeutic approaches to tailor sessions specifically to meet your needs. We are all individuals and I do not believe that one size fits all.
At times of stress it can feel like a very lonely place, but it does not have to be that way. So whether you require short-term or long-term therapy, please contact 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.
