About me

I offer a safe and non-judgmental place where people can be themselves; where they can bring and share their experiences, and look at how these particular situations affect their lives.

I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will follow your lead. Through our talks,  I will be able to gain insight into your problems and personal circumstances. I will help you understand where your difficulties come from and, when appropriate, I will gently challenge you and provide a different perspective. Together, we will work through layers of emotions and behaviours, to help you face the challenges and regain the control of your feelings and actions.

I aim to develop strong therapeutic relationship with clients from all walks of life, based on trust and respect. I genuinely believe that every person is unique and has capacity to change, and can overcome their struggles with therapy. I help individuals work through difficulties at their own pace, whilst supporting their emotional wellbeing. I champion their improvement and aid them to find a place, where they would like to be.

I am a relational therapist. I approach every client with empathy and care. I will support you on your path and help you regain your strength and achieve your healing goals.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
