There are many reasons why we seek Counselling/Therapy, everyone is different. However, there is one common factor and that is the desire to change something in our lives.
We are all wired towards growth, learning and healing but sometimes life events, challenges, the past or something unknown can stop this natural process.
This can have a big impact on how we live, leaving us possibly feeling Unsafe, Stuck, Helpless, Withdrawn, Depressed or Anxious, or having Relationship Problems, Low Self-Esteem, Negative Thoughts, Feeling Overwhelmed or Experiencing Physical Symptoms.
As a qualified and experienced Counsellor/ Therapist I work alongside you to support you in exploring, being curious and making sense of how you are feeling, to;
Gain a better Understanding of Yourself.
Have the ability to be aware of and Manage Emotional Experience.
Feel Safe, Calmer, more Connected.
Be Confident and Kinder to Yourself.
Connect with psychosomatic symptoms.
My approach is warm, sensitive, affirming, and unconditionally accepting. I am very much present, grounding and real. I also recognise the importance of providing a safe, calm and confidential environment.
If you would like to know more about how I work or the Counselling process please contact me by telephone, text or by email.

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)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
