Therapy works by offering a secure base from which the client can explore their unique and individual experience.
My job is to offer a warm and accepting environment where a person feels safe and supported to work through whatever issues are affecting them. By allowing a space that encourages the individual to be authentic, a process of self acceptance and healing can begin.
I will work with the client to build a therapy style that feels most effective to their needs. Often the healing can take the form of talking and processing emotions but sometime it may feel important to work creatively, either through writing, using art or connecting to the body through movement.
I work with a vast range of human experiences:
- Relationship problems
- Self esteem issues
- Bereavement and loss
- Childhood Trauma and its lasting effects
- Addiction of all kinds
These are just a few examples of what clients may wish to work on in therapy.

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.
