Are you feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or just unhappy? Sometimes these feelings are triggered by obvious causes, like a break up in a relationship, job loss or a bereavement, while at other times the underlying causes seem opaque, especially when life appears to be fulfilling and generally good. Counselling and therapy can help through providing a safe and supportive non-judgmental space to look into the possible sources of feelings, behavioural patterns and core beliefs that might be the underlying causes of distress.
My aim is to create an environment where you feel comfortable and safe. The work will be confidential and a collaborative process. I can help you talk about your feelings, and thoughts, and interpret your choices and patterns of behaviour, and I will equip you with some skills to help you deal with negative thoughts and feelings, so that you can make changes and move forward in your life.
I provide short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy depending on your needs. I offer counselling and psychotherapy service for adult individual clients (18+), and couples. For those unable to see me in person, online counselling is also available.

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.
