About me

Is life tough at the minute? Are you feeling out of your depth with the problems in your life, either now or from the past?

You may be feeling overwhelmed with emotions such as sadness, anger, worry and want to seek help for this or you may be feeling that have become disinterested in things or that your life has become mundane.  Feelings like this can sometimes indicate depression and we can work together so that you might find some interest and joy in life again.

I can provide a safe space that will allow you to explore the areas of your life that you may want to look at.  I will not solve your problems but instead will help you gain the “tools” you need to be able to support yourself by really listening to your story, being empathic and non-judgmental.  Just being heard can be really empowering and give you the clarity you need to make positive changes in your life.

I have worked previously with clients suffering from bereavement, domestic violence, family issues, anxiety and depression. While counselling isn’t about “fixing” a person, I was able to help my clients navigate their lives, make different choices and learn to deal with their issues.  Counselling is about helping people take control of their lives instead of letting their issues control them.

Within my work I use Person Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).  However,  I believe that when a person is struggling, the important thing is just having a person who is able to fully listen and understand what is going on for them.  Someone who can help you make sense of life offering insight and a different perspective to your situation.

I offer a free initial 15 minute phone call to ensure you find the therapist that is right for you and your needs.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
