Only you have the answers, but maybe I can help you find them.
I bring warmth, creativity, empathy, calm and openness to the work that I do, providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to get to know and appreciate you as an individual.
To speak openly and honestly in complete confidence with a skilled listener is a truly liberating experience.
I will listen and learn about what concerns you and during this process, we will explore together the problems that are affecting your life.
It is a unique opportunity to bring awareness and clarity to what is happening in your life, to understand negative patterns and beliefs, and to discover true thoughts and feelings. In seeing yourself from a clearer perspective, different options become available that enrich rather than limit life, giving a sense of purpose, meaning and fulfilment.
You don't have to be defined by your past, therapy can set you free from the experiences that have shaped your beliefs and behaviours.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
