Welcome to my profile. My name is Heather and I am trained as an integrative counsellor with a CBT modality. I offer short and long term therapy for children, adolescents and adults with a variety of conditions such as anxiety, depression, bullying, low self-esteem, bereavement, trauma as well as many other issues.
The clients I work with have brought many challenges to the session, including relationship problems, feeling depressed or suffering with anxiety. I also have experience helping people who are struggling after a bereavement or just don't feel themselves.
As your counsellor, I will provide a safe and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I will be with you every step of the way as you begin to understand and perhaps accept what is going on for you, and finding the courage to move on past your issues and make changes to move you forward into a better place.
I tailor the therapy to suit the individuals needs of my client, as everyone is unique - so working together we can develop coping strategies and access the tools to help you manage whatever is occurring in your life.
If you would like to find out more about the services I offer or to arrange a consultation, get in touch with me today. All enquiries are treated confidentially and I will happily answer any questions you may have. You can call me on 07863 745393 or click here to send me an email.

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.
