Are you finding life challenging/difficult, maybe with relationships, friendships, home life, work environment, bullying, bereavement etc? I am a qualified counsellor, working with Adults and young people (aged 12 and above). If you have something you need to talk about with someone privately, I am here to listen. I offer a safe, confidential space for you to express your thoughts and feelings.
Bereavement and loss can cover a number of issues from death, ending of relationships (separation or divorce), moving home/area, identity, miscarriage or termination/abortion or any situation where you feel a loss. You may even fear your own mortality.
Do you feel you have no one to talk to or that no one really listens?
Do you feel no one understands you or people misinterpret what you say and you cannot get them to hear your point of view?
Do you feel down, depressed, anxious but don’t know why or maybe you do but can’t find the right person to talk/turn to?
Do you feel isolated and alone?
Are your children having difficulties with peer pressure, self-harm, school life, relationship issues?
I can offer a safe contained space and together we can explore the way you are feeling in confidence.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I draw from a range of counselling theories to meet your needs.
I attend on-going training courses to up date my skills and knowledge.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
