Hello and welcome. I am a qualified Counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I own and run the private practice, WellSpace Counselling; where I offer 1-2-1 counselling for adults aged 18+
I counsel from a Humanistic foundation; my belief that everyone has the capacity to cope, grow and heal is the cornerstone of my practise. And yet, the impact of change, loss and trauma, can leave us feeling distant from these life-affirming parts of ourselves.
I will work with you to rediscover the part of you that is resilient to adversity, that can make sense of things and that can thrive in the life you want to live.
My approach is relational, in that I help my clients to understand how they relate to others, to their environment and to themselves. The therapeutic relationship we will build together will also provide a new relational experience for you; one which offers the support, empathy and compassion from which you can better understand yourself and explore any changes you want to make in your life.
Please make contact with me if you would like to arrange a free, 15 minute telephone conversation to briefly discuss your needs. Following this, we can schedule a 60 minute initial session charged at £60
This allows us the time to explore why you have come to counselling, what you would like to gain from your therapy and to plan how we will proceed.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
