Reasons people come to see me:
A feeling that something is not quite right in their life
getting over a break up
worried about their drinking/drugging or other behaviours
struggling in a relationship
childhood developmental trauma
feeling like they would be ok ‘only if…’
exhausted through over exertion
I deeply care about you moving from a place of survival to one of flourishing and thriving.
I invite you to be curious, to discover the whys and the hows of what you are struggling with. You are not alone. Many people need support and guidance of a professional to overcome the things in their life that block them.
Using specific techniques, we will establish the events and subsequent beliefs that are holding you back. It is possible to let go of what is troubling you. It is possible to heal. Once you start to let go of limiting beliefs and behaviours you can learn to truly connect with yourself. as you reconnect with your true inner self it is then possible to flourish.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to their ethical framework.
I have worked in two different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres where I have done one to one counselling and facilitated group therapy.
My training allows me to have a fundamental psychological understanding of what can be the drivers to addiction - attachment, trauma, abuse, genetics or family systems. This gives me a good framework of understanding about addiction and codependency to offer you in a counselling session. However, each person is unique and I do not use my experience to assign labels but to give a holistic understanding of addiction. Most importantly it is about you - your goals, your needs, your struggles. I take an eclectic approach in my work, drawing from the person centred philosophy but also using transactional analysis. transpersonal and existential approaches to inform my work.
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.
