Life can be challenging at times, and therefore I offer a confidential, supportive service to those that feel they would like support and help in dealing with issues they might be facing. I appreciate it takes a lot of courage to take the step of seeking a counsellor and building up a relationship of trust in order to work through the difficulties people might face. I offer an ethical, and safe service, suited to the needs of the client and work at their pace.
I am registered with the BACP and am trained in psychodynamic and systemic therapy. I am a Relate trained Relationship Counsellor, trained in working with domestic abuse, as well as all aspects of relationship breakdown.
I work with survivors of sexual abuse, relationship counselling and one to one personal counselling. This involves exploring the past as well as the present, in order to make sense of why a person is where they are at the point of when they come to counselling, why they have made the choices and decisions in their lives that they have made and where they would like to be in the future either in their relationship or within themselves, and how this can hopefully be achieved. This will either involve a period of weeks as in marital counselling, or months /years with personal counselling depending on the issues involved and the commitment to working through them with support.
I am happy to be contacted to discuss my service beforehand at no initial cost before proceeding with a face to face initial consultation should you find my services to be suitable for your needs.

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.
