About me

Are you yearning for peace of mind?  Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed or lost?

Is it clear to you that 'change' is needed in your life but you just have no idea how to go about making that change?

Why don't we investigate together!

I am a fully qualified, Integrative Psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)

Counselling gives you the time and space to talk things through with someone impartial and non judgemental. It can give you greater insight and self-awareness that can result in long-lasting changes that can help you live a more fulfilled life, with an increased sense of well-being.
Talking through things at your own pace, with the right counsellor for you, can give you the opportunity to gain new perspectives on your concerns, enabling you to understand yourself better, and evaluate your options more clearly.

I am genuine, warm and compassionate, and believe that every individual has the potential to grow into the best versions of themselves.
It is of paramount importance for me to get a sense of what is really going on for you. To see, and get a feel, of how life is for you from your perspective, so I can then support you in gaining the capacity and confidence to support yourself.
I want you, as my client, to feel safe and heard, and my hope is that by the end of our sessions together, you will also feel empowered.

I truelly believe it can be possible for anyone to find a renewed sense of direction and zest for life.

At the moment I am taking on teens and preteens From 11 years for telephone sessions at a reduced rate as there’s a huge demand please see below

TESTIMONIAL - published with permission 

I feel really valued when I talk to Holly.

 I feel my strengths are highlighted and I am seen not only as a patient but as a full rounded person with talents and abilities too.  

During my counselling, I felt not solely just listened to but understood too and actually actively working with me to understand my thoughts, behaviour and actions which really helped give me momentum to practically act upon my insights and thoughts

Holly has helped me see different perspectives and see clearly too from overthinking patterns

I learnt some really interesting insights into how my childhood relationships may have affected my current ones and thought about what I can be responsible for and in control of to alter situations but also endless amounts of compassion for myself, that although it is not my fault and to be gentle to myself.  I have the power to do something about it

I feel like afterwards I have a boost of self empowerment and feel a bit more able to believe that I can achieve what I want to that day.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Testimonial - kindly received and published with permission.  

‘I can only say, I wish I had found Holly sooner, and I can’t recommend her highly enough!  I came across Holly when I felt I had met a point of crisis, since then our sessions are a safe haven in my week where I can reflect, rant and work through my depression and sexual assault trauma.  After our sessions, I always feel lighter and can think with a clear head.  Holly is so warm and wise.  She is incredibly reassuring and since meeting her, I have never felt like I am alone in this.  I have genuinely felt a huge shift take place and have identified the tools to enable me to be calmer, and a more self loving and rational thinker’.
