Can't sleep at night? Not feeling like yourself? Finding it difficult to cope with life changing events? Struggling with anger/low self esteem/relationship. Counselling can help you explore these issues and make better sense of your feelings.
Working with young people and adults, I tackle a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, loneliness, abuse, stress, self esteem, relationship struggles etc. I believe people can be empowered to overcome any emotional difficulty, as a fully qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist, aiming to provide a high quality yet affordable counselling helping individuals to increase self confidence and develop strong satisfying relationship with friends and family, providing tools/strategies to overcome life challenges in a safe confidential non judgmental atmosphere.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
