About me

Hello, I help those struggling with the emotional and psychological difficulties which undermine their enjoyment of life; and also those who simply want to better understand what makes them ‘tick’. Are you are asking yourself: why am I feeling anxious? behaving in a way which is causing problems? experiencing low mood? or sensing a disconnection from yourself, others, or the life you wish you could lead?  If so then I am here to help and support you in making the changes that you need. 

I use my Integrative knowledge creatively, which allows me to draw on a range of theory and adapt that to your specific needs. I have great faith in the counselling process and have seen first hand how it can help people deal with their problems, unlock their true potential, and lead a better life.

What you can expect from counselling

You can talk to someone who is listening to you carefully; who understands how difficult life is for you, and perhaps how stuck you feel with these problems; sometimes it is better to talk to someone who is not one of the family, or a friend either. We would talk in private, examine and discuss your difficulties, and I would not judge you (and encourage you not to either). Through getting to understand how you are operating in life, and also how you are relating to myself and others, we can form an understanding of your patterns of behaviour, and their source. With a clearer view of yourself, you can start to make choices which are preferable and kinder to you, and I will help you build the strength to start new ways of being and the resilience to progress.

Counselling can give you a greater sense of who you are, how you connect with yourself and others, manage behaviours, and create meaningful change in your life.

If you have had enough of your struggles and distress and decide to get in touch, we would arrange the first session (without any obligation to continue), when we would discuss what is concerning you, what you would like to get out of therapy, and the basics of the counselling process.

I really want people to live their lives as well and as happily as possible, and feel for those struggling to do so. If you are ready to make the changes, then I am here to help you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
