Have you experienced distress and upset or loss ? Unresolved issues that trouble you? Do you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, PTS or depression ? Do you want to feel differently about the life you live or the person that you are. Perhaps you want to change aspects of you life for it to be more rewarding. Maybe you know that things are unlikely to change. Do you require a safe space where you can be heard, a place to share your thoughts and be understood. A place where being you is good enough. If you are 16 years old or heading into your 99th year, wanting to explore your world then it would be a privilege to support you.
As a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist and clinical supervisor who also works with hypnotherapy and Brainspotting, I will respond to your individual needs, working in a way that feels right for you. Having previously worked in the emergency services I have experience working with people who have gone through traumatic events and the effects this has on mental well being.
Meeting weekly or bi-weekly in a private and discrete location, offering short and long term integrative therapy which is available via morning, afternoon or evening appointments Monday to Saturday being 50 min or up to 2 hours in duration.
The relationship between counsellor and client is important to the work that takes place. I offer a free initial phone consultation of 30 mins with no obligation to proceed. In this time we can discuss your needs and if working together is right for you.

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.
