I work with clients to support them in their lives and be able to find their way in a world that can feel challenging, complex and overwhelming at times.
If you are you are unhappy with aspects of your life and are looking for help and support about how you feel. with a professional therapist then I would love to help. I am a BACP qualified counsellor who specialises in working with adults across a range of mental health conditions with specialist interest and experience in Addiction, and Women's Wellbeing.
You might feel stuck, worried, depressed, anxious. You may simply feel overwhelmed, lonely trapped or frightened. Maybe you are uncomfortable about how much you are drinking or using or you may have lost someone or something very dear to you. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard and to find clarity to enable and empower you to make your own decisions, in a supportive and confidential environment.
I am currently offering online and telephone counselling only due to Covid restrictions.

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.
