The desire for change, either from the difficulties of a sudden crisis, or more long-term feelings of discomfort, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression can be very powerful. We can easily get lost in the chaos of our thoughts and feelings and counselling can be an effective way of gaining some clarity.
I believe that we all know what we need in order to achieve a greater sense of well-being, and counselling can help us to tune in to and listen to that inner wisdom. If this is something you would like to explore further please feel free to contact me for an introductory chat.
I offer short and long term counselling and, because of the current COVID situation, I am seeing clients online on FaceTime, zoom, Skype or WhatsApp. I also offer phone sessions.
I am an Integrative counsellor specialising in CBT, Gestalt, Transpersonal and Person Centred theories as well as mindfulness and some art therapy techniques.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
