I provide a confidential service offering support for a wide range of difficulties. I offer both short term and longer term therapy. During an initial no obligation phone call, we can discuss whether I may be able to help. I work with clients to develop an approach best suited to their specific needs. We will usually agree this during the first couple of sessions.
I work from a safe, welcoming and private consulting room.
I am a fully experienced counsellor having worked with a range of people and problems including: depression, addictions, anxiety, relationship issues, panic attacks, stress, bereavement and loss, loneliness, separation and divorce and domestic violence.

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.
