If you’re finding things difficult, you’re not alone. I offer a safe, supportive space where you can explore whatever you may be struggling with. Things don't have to be really bad in order to seek help. Even mild symptoms can seriously impair our enjoyment of life and wellbeing. Counselling can be hugely beneficial simply for being able to share whatever's going on for you with someone who really listens, understands and supports you. My aim is to provide a warm, safe, supportive space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings or difficulties.
I work with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, past trauma, loneliness, grief and addiction. Perhaps you feel stuck or overwhelmed; lost, alone or disconnected; or lack purpose or meaning in your life. Maybe you don't really know what the problem is. Maybe you just want to offload onto someone, and that's fine too!
I can help you understand yourself better and see things more clearly. I can help you reconnect with your own personal strengths, work out what's important to you and start making the changes you want to make. I can help you work through difficult thoughts and feelings, and find ways to manage them so they have less impact on your life and wellbeing.

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.
