About me

I will look at you as an individual, ensuring I understand why you do what you do, think what you think and feel how you feel. Therapy is a collaborative process - a reciprocating exploration of yourself.

I offer a safe and confidential space for you to look into your thoughts, behaviour, feelings and emotions. Space where I can help you understand and explore any issues that may cause you psychological or even physical disturbance.

Intrusive thoughts, unhealthy habits, disruptive behaviour, disturbing feelings, invasive moods and anxieties are occurrences no one needs to suffer with, especially alone.

"Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know"

                                  -Pema Chodron

Above all, I can help you understand the relationship with yourself, which is often a hidden lens through which we experience the world.

"It is very difficult to untangle influences because you represent the sum of everything you have seen or heard or experienced."

                                  - Leonard Cohen

Member organisations

BACP

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.
