"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, 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.
Training, qualifications & experience
CertHE FdA MBACP
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.
