Compassionate, caring, non-judgemental psychotherapist offering a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Building self awareness and understanding helps you to make sense of yourself. In turn this can improve self esteem and confidence, empowering you make different decisions and choices in your life.
I have experience of working with a range of psychological presentations including anxiety, low-self esteem, confidence issues, depression, panic attacks, OCD, loss and bereavement, relationship issues, trauma and abuse.
Sometimes we become stuck in a repetitive cycle of unhelpful behaviours and are left with uncomfortable, familiar feelings. We also go through periods of transition and change in life. I provide a secure base within a supportive environment where you can explore different ways to manage your struggles and make sense of the difficulties you are facing.
I use an integrative approach which is flexible and tailored to suit your needs. However, I believe most importantly a trusting, empathic relationship is key to successful counselling.
I offer both long and short term therapy.

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.
