About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed and struggling to cope maybe it’s a sense of loneliness or you are frustrated with those around you?  You may be overcome with feelings of anxiety, sadness or anger or feel lost or desperate and you need someone to listen to you. People seek support from a counsellor for many different reasons these are some of the issues you might want to explore in therapy.

Exploring your situation through therapy can be challenging and painful but also powerful and life-enhancing. Sharing in a safe place can aid self-healing and can also lead to the changes you desire to make in your life – it often brings a fresh perspective and a sense of truly being heard. Therapy allows a unique space for you to talk about your feelings, doubts and fears in a confidential environment. When feeling secure and listened to we are often able to further develop as individuals therefore moving towards a truer self.

I am a qualified counsellor, I am committed to my clients and as a person centred counsellor following a “humanistic and existential approach”, I approach each client as an individual with their own unique story. My aim is to accompany you in exploring your world and how you experience it – in fact I consider myself a fellow traveller and your supportive companion.

It can be overwhelming making the decision to start therapy and is often a challenging first step. An initial telephone consultation would give you a sense of how we might work together.

I have experience in many different areas of mental health both working in community and charity schemes. Working with clients who are affected by substance and alcohol misuse, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship breakdowns and physical, sexual and psychological abuse.

Alongside my private practice I work for Combat Stress supporting veterans with PTSD. In a residential setting I work with a multi-disciplinary team on a 1-2-1 basis and facilitate psychoeducational, wellbeing and relaxation groups. Maintaining a recovery focus in relation to their mental and physical wellbeing.

I look forward to speaking with you, meeting you, travelling with you on your journey and ultimately watching you reach your full potential in whatever form that takes.

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.
