During these uncertain and troubling times, as well as face to face sessions, I am also able to to offer clients the opportunity & flexibility of telephone or video call appointments. A 30 minute complimentary call or session is available to anyone wishing to reach out for support.
The Value of Therapy / Counselling
There may be occasions in our lives when we struggle to make sense of what is happening to us and the world we experience. Depression, anxieties, stress, loss of a loved one and traumatic moments are some of many unforeseen events, that can all change the way we see ourselves and the life we are living. I provide an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences within a relationship that is free of the fears we may hold about disclosing to people we know. I offer a relationship of trust, honesty and openness that allows you to explore your story, thoughts, hopes and fears, in a safe, supportive, confidential place, free of external influences and judgement, providing an opportunity for personal insight and change.
I offer individual therapy to anyone that may be experiencing challenges in their life that may include depression, anxiety, abuse, loss, trauma, stress, anger, addictions, eating disorders and relationship difficulties.

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

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Mindfulness invites us to observe our internal and external worlds with inordinate care.
Mindfulness is a process that promotes an inherent tendency, in all of us, to become more aware of our present and on going experiences. Practicing mindfulness invites us to become more aware and understanding of our internal processes - thoughts, feelings and behaviors - that elicits an ever-deepening way of being, that opens up and welcomes possibilities that are as yet unknown.
I provide a safe, secure environment to explore your internal world, inviting you to become more aware and understanding of your own feelings and how they shape the perceptions of you and your experiences.
