During this difficult time we are facing, I am offering telephone and online counselling to all who feel they need some support through this time of uncertainty.
Sometimes we can feel 'stuck' and life throws us challenges that can feel overwhelming and get in the way of us moving forward.
I am a caring and empathic person who offers a safe and confidential space where together we can explore your current situation while forming a trusting and therapeutic relationship.
I am a humanistic integrative counsellor who offers short-term and longer term individual therapy for adults and adolescents.
I aim to help clients believe in themselves by recognising their self-worth and developing their self esteem, by providing them with a friendly and non-judgemental space.
Emotional and psychological difficulties can become problematic and have a negative impact on our everyday life. I offer a space where we can look at these difficult feelings, where you can feel heard and understood, and lead to a greater self-awareness to be able to identify where repetitive patterns of behaviour may underlie your presenting symptoms.
Sometimes words are hard to find or don't seem enough, if this is something that you recognise then we can look at working with other methods such as imagery, writing, sensory objects etc.
I have an enhanced DBS and abide by the code of ethics set out by the BACP.

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.
