When you feel anxious, stressed or life is too overwhelming, talking to somebody can help make sense of the issues you are facing, bringing relief and changes into your life.
I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy for a variety of emotional and psychological issues like depression, anxiety, stress management, anger, eating disorders, abuse, bullying, relationship issues, self-esteem, phobias.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The initial 30 minute consultation is free. After this, my sessions last 50 minutes and cost £60 per session, (phone and online sessions are £50)
