*I currently have limited ONLINE evening and daytime availability for immediate start.
If you are anxious about COVID-19, it is impacting your quality of life and state of mind, counselling may bring some relief. You can self-refer and do not need a referral from a GP or other professional.
My way of working is empathic and open, thorough and focussed on you.
I provide long term and short term private, discreet, confidential personal therapy in a comfortable setting in the Lisburn Road in Belfast or online via a number of online platforms. Whatever brings you to therapy, be it feeling generally low and struggling day to day or needing support with a particular issue like depression, anxiety, PTSD or trauma, talking to a professional can help.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
