DUE TO CORONA VIRUS I AM OFFERING ONLINE/ZOOM AND TELEPHONE COUNSELLING AS WELL AS LIMITED FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS
Hello and welcome to my profile page.
I am here to support you in with whatever is troubling you so well done in taking the most important first step.
The unprecedented times we have collectively been through has stretched our normal support systems to the limit and challenged us in ways we could not have contemplated.
For lots of people this has impacted on physical and mental health as well as putting a strain on relationships.
If any of the above resonates with you it might be reassuring to know you are not alone and help is at hand.
Whether or not the recent events have contributed to you seeking support counselling can provide a safe space for you to find a healthy way of managing whatever is going for you. If you are feeling overwhelmed, finding it difficult to cope or in conflict with your partner or loved ones you have come to the right place.
I can help you make sense of what is going on and together we can begin to restore some calm and balance to your life.
I am fully qualified having trained and worked for Relate for a number of years .
I work with both individuals , couples and family groups (adults only) on a range of issues such as low mood, depression, anxiety, isolation, affairs/trust, communication, conflict resolution.
Additionally I offer counselling for all pregnancy and birth related issues including postnatal depression (for men and women).
I offer a sensitive and confidential approach in order to help you feel at ease in talking through your situation - no matter how big or small you feel the difficulty is.
If you choose to work with me I will go at a pace which feels right for you in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
We will work through the issues which brought you to counselling so that you can make sense of where you are and more importantly draw on your own resources to overcome whatever is holding you back. In this way you can develop your own way of coping and better manage any future challenges which may arise. Ultimately this can free you to live more fully and help you regain your zest for life.
I work with clients of differing gender, age, ability, sexuality and culture and I offer a non judgemental approach which I believe is fundamental to developing a trusting therapeutic relationship.
I am a member of BACP and I have full indemnity insurance.

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).
