Many struggle to find someone close that they can talk to about their difficulties due to fear of judgement or not wishing to upset or be a burden - seeking counselling offers people the opportunity to speak freely and offload to someone who will listen.
Using the Person Centred approach to counselling I provide a confidential, safe and judgement-free space as you begin to explore your feelings and move towards a change in your life. I am a compassionate person and will use empathy to try to step into your shoes; however, I respect that they won't fit perfectly as experience is very individual.
I have gained my experience from working in the charity sector and have worked with adults that have experienced: bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, LGBTQ+ related issues and clients with learning disabilities. I have experience working with clients with a language barrier through the use of an interpreter and would welcome contact from those whose first language is not English and who has interpretive support from someone they trust - such as a friend or family member.

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.
