Are you struggling with work related stress? Would you like a better work life balance? Do you find it difficult to be heard at work and want to find the confidence to communicate better? Does it feel like your life is spiralling out of control and you just want someone to help?
I can help you to gain back control of your life, review and meet your personal needs. Ultimately helping you to find your voice, improving self esteem and work life balance. All change comes from you, as my approach is non directive, empowering you to take charge not just of the session but of your life and well-being overall.
Seeking counselling is a big step and can seem overwhelming, I too have been there and know how it feels. I will be there every step of the way to support you and empower you to make decisions right for you.
A previous client once said to me “you make me feel cared for even when you’re not talking” which reflects my approach to counselling. If you want to sit there and silently reflect that’s ok, if you want to cry for the whole session that is fine too, I will sit with you until you feel ready for the next step.
To book a session:
If you would like to book a FREE no obligation 20 minute telephone consultation, please call or text and leave your name and number and I’ll call you back.
At the first counselling session, we agree how we will work together and an assessment is carried out. Usually about ten minutes before the end of the session I will let you know that we are coming to the end allowing time to end appropriately and discuss any arrangements for the next session.

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.
