Are you feeling overwhelmed, lonely, lost and need someone who can listen? I can provide a safe, non-judgemental environment for you to make sense, explore and resolve any thoughts feelings and behaviours that you are struggling with. I am an integrative counsellor which means rather than follow a single therapeutic approach we can work together and draw in several theories to meet your individual needs.
I am also a qualified nurse and I have worked in the NHS for 20 years. Seeing the struggles that all of us go through on a day to day basis prompted me to develop my skills further by becoming a counsellor.
I work with adults and young people of all ages and I have helped people to cope with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, relationship/family issues, bereavement, sexual abuse and trauma.
The first session with me is a free and will last 30 minutes. It will help to see if I am the right person for you to work with and how I might be able to help you.

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.

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).
