Hello, life can be complicated, sometimes full of challenges which perhaps can become easier to cope with when someone non-judgemental really listens to you, enabling you to navigate a way forward.
I am able to offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore whatever difficulties you may be facing. I offer both short term therapy and longer term open-ended work, the choice is yours.
I work in an integrative way which offers a variety of approaches including person-centred, psychotherapy and CBT. Each client is unique and I work according to your needs. I specialise in young people and adults, coping with the complexities life can throw, often anxiety, depression and low self esteem.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
