About me

I have several years experience working with clients who feel they've lost themselves, suffering from depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement or trauma and finding it overwhelmingly difficult to cope with every day life. Whether people are impacted by recent problems or long term struggles, I support them at their pace on the symptoms that are causing pain and distress, to help them find peace.

Everyone struggles from time to time. There's no weakness or shame in asking for help. It takes strength to remember you deserve more, when our brains are fighting against us and telling us untruths, and you certainly don't have to suffer alone.

I pride myself on being a friendly, professional, understanding Counsellor and I provide a safe, comfortable,  confidential and non judgmental space for you to explore issues that are holding you back from living life to the full.  

I have extensive experience working with trauma and those with complex issues. I use Person-centred therapy, clinical hypnotherapy and the REWIND Technique according to the needs of the client.

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.

Further information

I offer a free initial 20 minute session either over the phone or by Zoom to talk through the issues that are causing you discomfort. This initial session will allow you the opportunity to get to know me a little, which will enable you to decide whether you feel comfortable working with me and to explore how I can help you.  During this session we will discuss what you want to achieve from counselling and agree on how many sessions we should hold and how often. Therapy can be undertaken on a weekly, fortnightly, monthly or on an ad-hoc basis, however therapy is best carried out weekly to achieve the best results.

I appreciate making the first step can be difficult, but you wont regret getting the help you need. You can contact me via, telephone, email, text, Instagram or Facebook messenger and I will reply to you, as soon as possible, to book in a suitable appointment time and date for an initial consultation.  

My counselling space is on the ground floor and is accessible for disabled clients and has toilet facilities.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
