Most people experience emotional problems at some stage in their life and need to come to terms with pain, loss or disappointment. Often this can be resolved without outside help. Sometimes, however, the difficulties persist causing unhappiness in relationships and at work, or lack of meaning or direction in life.
Counselling and psychotherapy offer effective treatment in a safe and confidential environment and can help with:
* anxiety, depression,
* panic attacks
* relationship problems
* issues of isolation or loneliness
* bereavement or loss
* fear, anger, obsessional thoughts,
* coping with health issues
* eating disorders and addictions
* blocked creativity
Life can seem overwhelming, direction-less or desperate at times. Counselling and psychotherapy provide a great support and guidance during moments of crisis.
I work integratively which means I bring together many schools of thought such as Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Humanistic, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Positive Psychology as well as the Transpersonal. This enables me to use many different methods to provide the best possible service for the specific needs of each client.
I believe we are all striving to realize the best of who we are. But sometimes we get stuck or find ourselves overwhelmed by circumstances and don't know where to turn.
Counselling and Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to explore your life circumstances in a safe and confidential space so that new choices can emerge and new perspectives can open up.
Truly sharing one's experiences and being listened to without judgement has a transformative effect in itself. Based on such a relationship change on the inside and of our outer world can take place.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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).
