I am passionate about supporting people in finding their voice to be heard and understood. The first time you meet someone new can be a very anxious time which is why I offer a free 20 minute consultation before to ensure that we can work together to resolve questions and allow you to find a sense of safety and ease. It's important that you and I feel we can form a working connection.
The room I work from offers a quiet and comfortable space with good parking and access to Public Transport links. This space is cleaned regularly and well ventilated to support Covid safe working. I also offer walk and Talk sessions and zoom sessions.
I work with adults, young people and children offering a variety of approaches. I have developed a varied tool kit during my working career. I have an arts background and am able to work in a creative way in supporting you to find your voice at times when words feel difficult.
When feelings and situations become overwhelming and too much it's important to feel confident that you can speak without fear in a confidential space. Allowing you to take steps to see difficulties from other perspectives and find possible approaches to heal and gain a sense of well-being. Releasing past hurt and taking steps to celebrate you with compassion and kindness.

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.
