About me

"Welcome, come in, and please have a seat!"

How did I get here? Have you ever had one of those deeply powerful ground shaking moments where you feel that your very roots have been ripped apart and shaken to your core?

I remember the first time this ever happened as though it was yesterday.

How I can Help

We have all endured and managed to cope with so many types of loss throughout our lives from loss of family, loss of a partner, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of a body part, loss of youth, the person you used to be, loss of lifestyle, loss of employment and ability to even managing finances, loss of your beloved pet or treasured friends.

One day you get to that place where you don’t have the strength to take the next step. It takes everything in you to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self.

You can’t talk to friends or family and it is all a bit too much to handle; overwhelming. As you listen to your innermost self and feel deep down that all you need is a safe space where you can just be YOU. This is all within the safeness of complete confidentially and is offered in a non-judgemental way.

I am here for you.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
