About me

At times, life can feel challenging or confusing. It can be a struggle to make sense of our circumstances. Relationship issues, anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement and divorce, are common problems that many of us face in our lives, which can affect our happiness and quality of life. My professional, but caring and down to earth approach aims to be supportive and sensitive whilst we work through your issues and difficulties.

My core approach to therapy is person-centred. This approach is non-directive and puts you the client at the heart of the therapeutic process and allows you to set your own pace, one that you are comfortable with. My aim will be to provide a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space where you can feel safe enough to talk about any issues or concerns, whether past or present, that may be impacting on your everyday life. In exploring parts of your life and relationships that you are not happy with, counselling, can help you in developing your own inner resources and enable you to find your own answers and solutions to your current difficulties.

I offer both short and long term counselling to Individuals and Couples and Supervision to qualified counsellors.

It is important that you find the right counsellor for you so please call me for an informal chat, or email if you prefer, if you have any questions/queries.

  • B A (Hons) Counselling Studies (University of Essex)

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
