About me

We can be prompted to seek help from a therapist for many different reasons. You may be struggling with an issue that you can’t seem to resolve alone. Or feeling overwhelmed by anxiety or depression, or somehow stuck in life. Or you may be feeling a general sense of unease in your own skin.

When something is interfering with our ability to live a meaningful and rewarding life, it can be a struggle to figure out a way forward. If this rings true for you, it might be helpful to explore how you are feeling with someone who is professionally trained. Together we can work to help you to achieve a greater sense of personal freedom.

Counselling with someone you can trust and feel comfortable with is an investment in yourself and your life. Whatever you may be struggling with, whether it's something you're experiencing now or something from your past, I will listen to you very carefully and respectfully as we work together.

I believe that it is within the strong and caring therapeutic relationship we build together that effective healing can take place. The way in which you live your life is unique to you. I will honour your uniqueness and provide a warm, open, honest and empathic space free of judgement where, together, we can explore whatever is troubling you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
