What my clients have said about their counselling experience.
“I can’t believe what an enormous difference counselling has made to my life. I feel like I now know where my future lies. I was always led by others in the past but I now feel that I am in control.”
“I found it so easy to talk to you about my innermost feelings. I was in a very dark place before I came for counselling. You helped my to see that I could find a better place and you gave me the tools that I needed to begin to move forward on my own,”
“I was very nervous before my first session but you quickly put me at my ease. I was able to tell you things that I have never spoken of before. I will be forever grateful for the help and support you have given me.”
I specialise in working with a wide variety of people from all walks of life who are suffering from anxiety and depression.
I also have experience in Family issues, bereavement, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Discussing these issues with me will enable you to understand yourself better.
There are many other areas in which I have gained experience over the years including addiction, dependent personality disorder, chronic illness, panic attacks, abortion, and low self-esteem.

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.
