Hi, thank you for stopping by. I know finding a counsellor can be overwhelming and knowing which one to choose tricky. I would encourage you to contact more than one, as you tend to 'know' the best person for you.
I am an integrative counsellor (schooled in many different types of therapy), which means I can tailor the sessions to suit your needs. My style of counselling has been described to be warm, compassionate supportive towards you and your situations. I will provide a safe, nurturing and healing space for you to discover your true self and feel happier.
I offer a free no obligation assessment by phone.
Getting support when you need it is the one of the kindest things you can do for yourself. If you are feeling lost, down, anxious or lonely and want to feel better we can explore these feelings together and work towards a happier more content you.
Ethics and safety
I work to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics and practice for more information please go to the B.A.C.P website. I hold full Indemnity and public liability insurance and have an enhanced DBS certificate.
Low income and students
I do offer concessions for people on low incomes (with proof of benefits) and also for students. These are available for daytime appointments only.
I work with people aged 17 years and up and as long as we get along (which we can work out via an initial assessment) then my aim is turn no one away.
Each week /fortnight we will arrange a regular time and place to work together, this will be for 50 mins.

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).
