I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer one to one counselling in a safe, confidential space.
There are times in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed, struggling to cope with stress, anxiety, depression or trauma. Sometimes we may feel alone and stuck with our difficult thoughts and feelings - some things we may not feel comfortable discussing with friends and family.
Counselling can help.
Counselling can help you to see things from a different perspective, find clarity, feel less alone and depressed, and discover the resilience to move on and make changes.
Finding the right counsellor for you is very important. As an artist I also work creatively with my clients, using imagery to help explore what's going on for you, and providing opportunity for drawing or painting within the space.
I aim to provide a safe supportive environment in which to develop a trusting relationship, one in which you will be heard with respect and without judgement. We will work together to explore any troubles or concerns, and towards a place in which you feel less 'stuck' and are able to move forwards.
If you feel we would work well together please contact me by email or phone and we can book an introductory session. During this first session you will be able to talk through your concerns and experience how I work to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for 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.
