There are times in life, when we need someone to turn to, who can help us to make sense of things and cope with difficult feelings or situations. If you are in need of support, feeling alone, in distress, or have issues which are troubling you, therapy can help.
Therapy involves an exploration of self, with a trusted and skilled companion. This needs to be someone you connect with and feel comfortable with. Someone who understands you and cares.
I have trained in Integrative and Transpersonal Psychotherapy, which means that I work with a variety of different therapeutic models and am open to all things. I believe that we are all unique and therefore see all people as individuals. I work with the past, the present and the unconscious, depending what is required. I sometimes use visualisation and imagery, if this is something you feel comfortable with. This can be particularly helpful for things which cannot be put in words. I am sensitive and compassionate and have a great deal of life experience, which enables me to understand another's pain.
Therapy can also be used for personal growth. It can enable us to understand ourselves better and what we are seeking from life; it can help us to find meaning.

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).

Free initial telephone session
I offer a free initial conversation on the phone. Following this, we would have an online session without commitment on either side, to see if we are a good match. Thereafter, if we agree to proceed, therapy would take place on an ongoing weekly basis, taking into account your goals and objectives.
My availability is weekdays and some evenings.
I am currently working online only, due to Covid. As things improve, I will be able to offer online, or in-person sessions.
