Hello and welcome!
Are you looking to make a change? You may not know where to start, but that’s ok. We can work it out together. Counselling and psychotherapy is not about giving advice, it is about exploring problems together to allow for change. The fact that you've made the decision to talk to someone is the first step to change. Whatever you're situation might be, trying to find the right person to talk to can seem like a daunting task.
I can offer you a space that is confidential, supportive, warm and free of judgement to help you explore what is going on for you or causing you problems. By building a trusting relationship and working together we can help you to feel more safe, access your resources and bring possibilities into your awareness. My main aim is to raise a greater awareness and understanding of yourself and to help reduce current conflicts. I am dedicated to supporting you with personal development and growth and to help you move towards your goal.
I have been working therapeutically with vulnerable individuals and groups for the past 10 years. Within this I have supported individual’s with issues such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, addictions, trauma, relationship and attachment issues, shame and bereavement.

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.

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).
