Working as an experienced and qualified counsellor; I provide a confidential counselling service and professional support for teenagers and adults experiencing problems including anxiety, depression, loneliness, bereavement and relationship problems.
I will offer you support in a non-judgemental way, and will help you reach your own understanding rather than offering you advice, or telling you what to do. Working together, counselling can help you reflect on whatever may be troubling you and enable you to feel unburdened and able to move forward in your life.
If you feel ready to start your counselling journey, send me a message here or on my website, or by calling or sending me a message by phone and we can arrange an initial session to discuss what you hope to get out of counselling and to see if you are happy to continue working with me. If you are, then we can schedule your next session and take things from there.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have completed a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, as well as advanced safeguarding and bereavement training.
In addition to this, I am a trained Drawing and Talking practitioner. This is an experiential form of therapy that has benefits for children, young people and adults who have suffered trauma or have underlying emotional difficulties - you don't need to be an artist to benefit from this form of therapy!
I work within the guidelines of the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and abide by their procedures for professional conduct.
I have experience working both as a school counsellor and within a youth agency for a number of years. My experience covers children, adolescents and adults.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
