About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with your circumstances or feelings?

I can support you to gain insight, clarity and understanding, helping you find a sense of calm. With this new perspective, you can start to build resilience for facing further struggles and difficulties that life inevitably brings.

I provide a safe and confidential space where you will be fully accepted, not judged, to explore your feelings, relationships, and circumstances.

Some of my approaches include:

  • How Attachment Patterns in early life affect current relationships.
  • Working creatively to help you release your emotions.
  • Finding the significance of your 'shadow' side (Carl Jung).
  • Exploring the parent, adult and child in you (Transactional Analysis).
  • Existential ways to find meaning in whatever life throws at you.

I am fully committed to guiding and facilitating you to help you find your own truth, by careful listening along with a constant focus on how you experience the world. We will work at your own pace, 'peeling off some emotional layers' only if you feel safe enough to do so.

What happens next?
I offer a free 1/2 hour consultation to help you decide if counselling is for you. Please call today on 07801 295 840 or click here to send me an email.

I am able to provide counselling face to face, online and via telephone. Please get in touch to discuss which option would be more suitable for you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
