At certain times in our life we could all benefit from someone objective and professional to talk to. Recent statistics highlight that 1 in 4 of us will suffer from mental health issues at some point in our lives. What I will offer you is a place to talk through worries and concerns that are affecting you right now. Whatever is causing you unhappiness, you are not alone...you maybe confused and don't know where to turn, unhappy with your life. You may be going through grief, trauma, loss, separation. You may feel overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety, panic, depression....irrational fears and phobias. You may be struggling with an addiction that is getting out of hand. I have experience with dealing with all these issues and many more so, please see below for an extensive view of my experience.
If you are feeling confused and overwhelmed by your emotions at this time, or unsure where to go from here, let me try to reassure you....I can offer you an assessment session where you can get the chance to meet me, ask questions and decide whether we can work forwards together towards a better, happier more relaxed way of being that is right for you. This is your time to be heard, I will offer you a safe, comfortable and confidential setting that is non-judgemental, empathic, warm and welcoming. Together and at your pace we can explore your feelings and understand how they are impacting on your life, together we can work towards a brighter future.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).

I WILL OFFER YOU A FREE NON OBLIGATION INTRODUCTORY SESSION FOR SUPERVISION
Sessions last 50 mins to one hour. At our assessment session we can meet and decide whether we feel we can work together. From this session I may explore with you a way of working that could be beneficial for you and your needs. This may include Person centred counselling, CBT, Hypnotherapy, relaxation work , mindfulness practice with guided imagery to name a few. This is a collaborative process, all ways of working are discussed and agreed before therapy begins. YOU AND YOUR NEEDS ARE CENTRAL TO THE COUNSELLING PROCESS, THIS IS YOUR TIME TO BE HEARD.
As we work forward together we will review how you feel therapy is going for you and reschedule further sessions depending on your needs. You are under no obligation to stay in therapy, although I would advise a closing session if you wish to discontinue.
