I am a MBACP psychotherapist, currently offering face to face, online, telephone and walking talking therapy sessions. You maybe feeling sad, lost or bereft. Experiencing feelings which are leaving you distressed and confused, anxious and lonely, unsure of where to turn or who can be there beside you. You maybe having self-doubt, or lack of confidence. Has there been a traumatic event that you haven't been able to share in a safe space? I am able to support you through life's twists & turns, by using Person-Centred and or Intergrative modes of therapy, allowing me to tailor make session for you. I offer a safe non-judgmental space & the opportunity to explore your anxieties, reflect, heal & grow.
I can help you explore your bereavement and loss, as you adjust to your changed future. You may have lost someone close to you; a death of a loved one, experienced suicide or a still birth in your family, or the faces sudden trauma associated with loss.
Taking the plunge to access therapy can feel like stepping into the unknown, however, through building a trusting relationship it can be a safe confidential space of exploration, leading to positive goal building and better emotional health. By exploring the past and working together in the here and now, I can help you build a positive future. You do not need to be alone.

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.
