Change is possible, life can be difficult. Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by our emotions maybe because of things that have happened to us in our past: sadness, depression, anxiety or anger all of these can interfere with our enjoyment of life, cause problems in our relationships and keep us stuck.
Counselling can help you to realise that change is possible.
I provide private effective one to one professional counselling which gives you the opportunity to explore your problems and worries in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Having worked with a wide range of client difficulties I strongly believe that Counselling & Psychotherapy can help individuals understand and work through painful and overwhelming issues.
The first meeting will give you the chance to talk about the difficulties and concerns you are experiencing (past or present) by the end of this session you will be better informed about counselling, how it works and if counselling is for you at this time.
The benefits of counselling will help you to:
- Deal with the past, present and future effectively
- Handle stress and anxiety effectively
- Know how learned behaviours can stop you from reaching your full potential.
- Think positively
- Create positive relationships
- Deal with anger and frustration
- Use your creativity to enable you to lead a more meaningful and enjoyable life.
Counselling will provide you an opportunity to explore your feelings, make sense of what is happening or happened and gain greater self awareness.

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.

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).
