Life can present us with challenges and issues that can be overwhelming and painful. Sometimes there are clear triggers for the way we feel such as a job loss or a bereavement and at other times we may not be aware of why we are feeling annoyed, irritated or behaving in a certain way.
Talking with a counsellor can help you understand difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress, it allows you the space to explore issues and helps promote self discovery, increased awareness and a deepened connection with oneself.
I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work within their Ethical Framework for good practice and adhere to their guidelines.
I offer a safe therapeutic space which is non-judgemental and where confidentiality is paramount. The approach I use is non-directive and is client led, which means I will work at a pace that suits you, allowing you to explore your own thoughts and feelings, and on your journey I will walk along side you.
I provide short and long term counselling.
My background - I was previously based in a G.P surgery.
I have regular supervision and undertake CPD training.
I am currently delivering my counselling service by zoom due to current circumstances. Zoom is a way for you to see your counsellor face to face without leaving home.

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.
