Hi, my name is Denise. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
Life can seem overwhelming at times, whether you’ve experienced a traumatic life event such as sexual abuse, anxiety, bereavement, divorce , family issues, panic attacks or whether day to day life feels difficult there is always hope. Sometimes life can feel isolating and it is as if nobody will understand or will judge you for feeling the way that you do.
When you feel like this it can be difficult to find your own hope. By providing a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings we can work together to see some light. I can work alongside you to hold your hope until you are ready to reclaim it.
Using the Person-Centred counselling approach we can tailor your therapeutic journey and work with who you are as an individual. I work with every individual in their own unique way. I am currently working remotely due to lockdown but offer a mix of face to face and remote working.

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

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).
