I am currently offering both Face to Face Sessions (in-line with social distancing precautions and absence of symptoms) Walk and Talk Sessions, Online Therapy via secure video link (Zoom).
I work with both adult clients and young people.
I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.
The world we live in today frequently uses words such as anxiety and depression to describe challenging emotions that we have in daily life; these challenging emotions and the way they affect our lives are unique to every person.
Together we can look at how anxiety and depression affect you, where these feelings may have originated and work towards ways of understanding them to hopefully loosen the grip that they have on your life.
I believe that we all have the capacity to grow and discover more about ourselves and the way we experience our lives. Through exploring your story together, we can unearth awareness of how you are living your life. How past events may still be having an impact on your present and subsequently your future, and together begin to process and heal these areas in order for you to build emotional resilience and a deep understanding and connection to yourself.
Through gaining an understanding of who we are, reasons behind the way we react to situations and relationships in our lives, we can become more resilient to the changes and challenges life inevitably brings.

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.
