I can work creatively, encouraging new skills and techniques whilst working through turmoil and barriers to enable you feel empowered to grow as a person/people/family
How counselling can help...
Are you going through life not understanding why you feel or act the way you do? Or not able to understand how your feel?
As a couple or family are you struggling to bond, or appreciate each others differences?
Is it preventing you achieve what you want in life, causing issues with your personal life/relationships, impacting on your work/school/family or effecting your physical health?
Do you feel you can’t cope with life any more, it all too much and confusing? Maybe you are struggling with a recent situation or perhaps a historical childhood event(s).
Does this make you feel anxious, frustrated, angry, withdrawn, or use unsafe coping methods because you can’t understand or identify your emotions.
I can help you with:-
Self-harm, Anxiety, Stress, Service veterans, Emotional/Physical/Sexual Abuse, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Trauma, Depression, Personal development, Self esteem, Men's issues, Women's issues, Child related issues, Relationships, Anger management, Work related issues, Family Therapy

- I undertake regular training as part of my continued professional development and in line with BACP registration
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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
