Are you suffering from Anxiety or stress? Would you like to feel happier and more calm? Life can be hard at times and we all need some extra support to help us through.
With 10 years experience I understand that it can be difficult taking the first steps into having therapy and I also understand the benefits and value of therapy from my own personal experiences.
I offer short and long term therapy for adults, teenagers and children.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, providing a safe, confidential and non judgmental place for you to talk and explore your thoughts and feelings. Counselling will provide you with a supportive environment to help you gain some meaning and understanding around whatever difficulties you are going through in your life right now and help you to find some clarity.
essentially our sessions will involve exploring your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and patterns as it is only with increased understanding and self-awareness that we are able to take charge of our lives, make positive choices and to live in a more fulfilling way.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I use different approaches tools and techniques that I feel suit your individual needs to give you the best possible experience in counselling.
I work with children, teenagers and adults in one 2 one sessions. I also like to bring the creative/expressive art therapy side into it too especially with my younger clients.
I work with a varied range of issues such as Relationship issues, anxiety, anger management, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, bereavement, parenting and many more.
I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics and practice. I have been awarded the BACP Certificate of Proficiency and I attend supervision with a registered supervisor.

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.
