Thank you for visiting my page. I know the idea of going to counselling comes with all sorts of reservations and worries, and yet you are visiting this page; so perhaps if you are ready, it might be the time to give it a try.
Life can be full of difficult times and sometimes we cope well, but at other times some help can make all the difference. I can offer a warm, confidential and nonjudgmental space to look at what maybe troubling you.
My job is to try and understand and explore whatever feelings you maybe having right now. That, in itself has the ability to take a great weight off. To be heard and understood is vital. It might also be important to look back into your past and understand if any aspects of it are still affecting you today. We can work towards some real positive change in whatever area is important to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
In my private practice I support clients with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, anger issues, depression, suicidal thoughts, stress, OCD, loneliness, low self-esteem, addiction, bereavement, relationship issues..... the list is endless.
Alongside my private practice I currently work for 2 local charities counselling both adults and teenagers.
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.
