Beginning therapy can be a big step towards being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible. No matter what challenges you may be facing, through therapy you can change behaviours and habits and resolve painful feelings.
No-one should have to face problems alone and I would like to help you gain the tools you need to make any necessary changes to enable you to live a more fulfilling life.
Within my work I cover a range of issues including Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Low Self-esteem/Low Confidence.
Together we will build a therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable and safe enough to explore your experiences and difficulties with me, in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
We will work through your thoughts and feelings and through our counselling sessions you will be provided with the opportunity to gain the tools you need to encourage growth and move towards change.
I hope this website has given you a sense of what I can offer, but please do feel free to contact me for a chat on 07756 696247 if you wish to discuss anything further, or email me.

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.
