About me

Do you feel stuck, perhaps in relationships or your job, and cannot see a way forward?  Are fears of making wrong decisions, failure or rejection holding you back making you feel frustrated, lonely and sad?  Maybe you aren’t sure what you want, you just know something is missing.  Or there seem to be so many obstacles in the way of your reaching your goals. You may feel lost and time is running out.

Do you find yourself asking:

  • Why do I keep on making bad choices?
  • Why do I keep on walking into relationships that hurt me?
  • What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes talking to friends or family can be difficult because you are worried about upsetting them or feeling a burden.  I offer a space where I will listen and accept you for you.  Together we will work to help you find your way forward and cope better with what is making you feel worried, overwhelmed and sad.

It can be really hard asking for help; I appreciate how uncomfortable and awkward it can feel.  Perhaps you are thinking:

  • I’ve got it good compared to everyone else and shouldn’t complain
  • I should be able to do this on my own
  • I don’t deserve it, other people have real problems

This is not unusual and many people feel like this.  You are making the first steps already and I offer a free introductory phone call where I can answer any questions or concerns you have.

How I can help
I can help you feel better about yourself and this in turn will help you to have healthier relationships, feel more fulfilled and happier.  Through my work with clients, these are some of the outcomes I have seen, and that I can help you to achieve too:

  • Cope with difficult relationships – both in your personal and work life
  • Feel less stuck and have the confidence to make decisions
  • Feel less overwhelmed and stressed and find the balance needed to cope with life
  • Find stress and anger management techniques
  • Feel less guilty
  • Be kinder and more accepting of yourself

Our initial session will be an opportunity for us to get a sense of how we may work together and whether you feel I am the right therapist of you - there is no obligation.  We will talk about the difficulties you are experiencing, what you would like to get from counselling and how I can support you in achieving this.  I am here to listen to what is going on for you, so please do get in touch.

About me
My experience of counselling began when I started seeing a counsellor because I needed to talk about someone in my life where I thought we would never speak again. Counselling helped me to completely turn this around and we ended up having a very close relationship. Knowing the difference counselling can make, I wanted to work with people who were struggling and feeling overwhelmed and offer support in helping them to find their way to healthier and happier relationships.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
