Life can be frustrating and difficult, and at times it can feel as though we have lost our way. Most of the time we get on with things, and manage by ourselves, or with the help of other support, from perhaps family or friends. However, sometimes we are stopped in our tracks by an event or situation that we do not, at that moment, have the resources to sort out.
Counselling and psychotherapy provide a regular time and space for people to talk about their troubles and explore difficult feelings, make sense of what is happening, gain greater self-awareness, improve their relationships, and develop better ways of living.
I bring many years of experience to my work with individuals, couples and groups, and offer a relaxed, safe, caring and confidential space, where we can begin to work through the feelings that may be troubling you.
Deciding to go for counselling can be a difficult, and even scary decision, and I promise to give you my full focus and attention so that you can work towards a happier and more contented life.

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.
