Sometimes it feels difficult to let something go, it is always there, casting a shadow over everything that you do. Perhaps you have a sense that something is not right, but you are not sure what it is? Counselling offers a space to explore your feelings. Only you know how it really feels to be you, but that doesn't mean you have to be alone with your feelings. To be listened to, without judgement or advice, is a key starting point in therapy. Talking about whatever issues you face offers a fresh perspective and an increased awareness of what they mean for you. This awareness is what enables change.
My aim is to provide a safe, comfortable environment where you can explore your issues at a deeper level. I have worked with clients with a range of issues, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression and trauma. I have experience working with adults, children and young people.
I work in a non-judgemental way, at a pace that suits you. I like to work creatively with each client to find the most effective way to enable change and growth. Taking the first step might feel hard, so I'd be happy to have a chat by email or phone, to answer any questions you may have.

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.
