Being a young person is not easy, especially between the ages of 16-22. Stress and anxiety hit us everywhere, from:
- Your appearance
- Moving schools/college/university
- Social media
- Family situations
- Work experience
- And so much more...
It's supposed to be the best time of life, but it doesn't always feel like it. You might cope by bursts of anger, or by keeping your feelings hidden from those around you, and now you're finding it's completely draining.
So if you need things to start changing for the better and quickly, counselling might be perfect for what you need. It's a safe and totally confidential place to talk about how you're really feeling. It's good to talk, so get in touch today.
I provide therapy online via Zoom. Working for the NHS as a Therapist for young people for over 3 years, I've helped many teenagers: free themselves of fear of exams, raise their self-esteem to not care what others think, and find the peace of mind that all will be okay - with a solid personalised plan of why and how it will be okay.
It doesn't matter whether you've had counselling before or not. Talking to a qualified therapist who understands what it's like to be young today, who won't judge you and will listen to how you're feeling, can make a huge difference. You may feel you've never been fully understood before. Let's change that - I'm here to help if you need me.

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.
