Are you struggling with your past, depression or anxiety or just finding life hard to manage. I would love to walk alongside you and help you to find a way through. I am trained in person-centred counselling which allows you to choose what to talk about in our sessions. My role is not to tell you what to do, but rather to walk alongside you and help you develop your own resources to cope with life's difficulties. I will offer non-judgemental support and hope it will be a place where you can be free to be yourself.

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.
