Are you experiencing anxiety, stress, or other uncomfortable feelings and would like to talk things through? Sometimes just being listened to can help to change the perspective, make things clearer and more manageable.
You are my focus. I want to build trust between us, freeing you to feel able to explore what you need to. My aim is to help you, in which ever way I can.
Due to the restraints of covid 19, I decided to offer walking therapy and have found it wonderfully beneficial. Being in nature brings a different dimension to the session. Walking through trees can have a profound effect on our sense of well-being; it is peaceful and yet energising. Thoughts and emotions can be experienced more freely and the bodily experience of anxiety, tension and stress will usually disappear.
Also being outside, walking side by side can be helpful for those who find the idea of being face to face too intense. I have a garden 'shed' for when the weather is not suitable and I am also now offering socially distanced face to face.
Counselling is my primary focus, but I have additional qualifications in herbal and naturopathic medicine. It can be helpful to work with the connections of bodily health and mental health. The potential for integrating treatments is there if desired.
If you would like to meet me to see if I can help you, I offer a free 30 minutes in person, over the phone, or via zoom.

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.
