I’m glad you have found your way here, it’s your first step towards feeling better.
Most of us experience difficult times at some point in our lives. Perhaps you are going through a difficult life event, are struggling to come to terms with past experiences, feeling low and a bit lost.
We can work together to help you lift your head and feel better. My room is a calm environment where we can talk and explore your thoughts and feelings in a supported environment. I'm qualified and a member of the BACP so you can have confidence in my abilities but also, I am easy to talk to, kind and encouraging.
I work with clients who have suffered loss, are struggling to deal with anger, anxiety, depression or feelings of sadness or stress. Some of my clients are trying to work out their identity, whether this is their gender or sexuality. For some the pressure to succeed at work and socially has become overwhelming, for others the menopause has left them feeling sad or not themselves and they are trying to work out what they want now children have left home and life has changed for them.
All have benefited from the opportunity to talk about these things in a safe, kind and non-judgemental environment. If you would like to book a session please get in touch.

I have experience working with:-
Breakeven, a gambling addiction charity both with gamblers and family affected by gambling issues.

A local secondary school offering counselling for year 7 to 13 students.
I also volunteer with a listening service, offering a non-judgemental listening ear for people who need to talk or who are in distress.

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 membership
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).

I put a number of sessions a week aside for students so that I can charge less, if these slots are full then my usual rates apply.
