I have worked successfully with a variety of clients helping them with anxiety, depression, social anxiety, work related issues, family issues and bereavement. I have also helped clients experiencing feelings of guilt and shame, and clients who want to make changes but feel 'stuck' . I also work with clients who have low self esteem and lack confidence.
I give clients time , space and my full attention ,so that together we fully understand what is happening for them .I work in a way that suits the client and together we explore issues and find how to change, accept or reach goals - whatever is needed for each particular client - every client is different and differences are valued.
How I work
I offer weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes . I work mainly online via Zoom with some limited face to face sessions available as well . I am flexible about when sessions take place and understand that it can be difficult for clients to find time for sessions.Zoom sessions work really well for clients who have busy lives .
I believe that as a counsellor I should adapt and grow with each client that I work with .Each client is a unique and special person and all the sessions I deliver are bespoke to that individual client. I design the counselling to fit the client rather than expecting the client to fit the counselling.
Because I value my clients ,I work in an open, honest and professional manner but always in a warm and welcoming way .
More information can be found on my website and I am happy to have a brief telephone chat with potential clients where I can answer any questions that you may have. Please contact me for more information or to book a 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.
