Welcome to our profile and well done for taking that brave, first initial step and reaching out for support.
You maybe struggling with relationships, feel depressed or suffer from anxiety, or you maybe struggling with a bereavement or just don't feel yourself.
As your counsellor, we will provide a safe and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. We can either work with you in a person centred way or use a technique which we specialise in known as drawing and talking therapy. This technique works with the unconscious mind in a creative way. This technique is ideal for when you have difficulty in putting words to your thoughts & feelings. It is especially good for children who have additional needs, e.g. ASD, OCD, anxiety and other issues.
As well as being friendly and a supportive practitioners, we work ethically within the BACP guidelines and we will always have your best interests at the heart of all therapy sessions. We both work in an integrative way as every client is unique, We adapt our therapy style to what will best suit the client.

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
