I offer a free 20 zoom chat so we can see If I can meet your needs and If you feel I am the right Counsellor for you.
What to expect within Adults and Adolescents Counselling.
The most important part of the therapy is often the relationship between therapist and client and it is important that you feel comfortable with them and trust your instincts when choosing someone to talk to and make sure you feel they're the right person for you.
Working with adults and adolescents, I offer the core conditions in counselling, meaning I will provide a safe, warm and confidential place to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental and accepting environment. I believe my easygoing personality and humor in the therapy room enhances the therapeutic relationship allowing us to really explore in depth the obstacles that are holding you back. In our free informal twenty minute chat we will find out what is going on for you at the present time? what you would like to achieve from counselling and working with me? along with any questions you may have. I will then give you the space to go away with no presure and think about if you feel it would be beneficial for you to work with me and we can go from there. I can work with you on overthinking, anxiety, depression, self halm while holding a specialism in trauma and neurodiversity.
Short and long term therapy are available. My style of counselling is integrative, meaning I draw on different counselling theories tailoring the sessions to my clients needs, this allows us to get the most out of your sessions.
I also offer Coaching, these sessions are more direct and solution focused. Allowing you to explore and find different coping skills.

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.
