Sometimes in life we can experience seemingly overwhelming difficulties like anxiety, depression or struggling in a relationship and don't understand why. At times like this it can be beneficial to enlist the help of a trained professional, who will listen and understand without judgement.
I can provide a safe, comfortable, private and quiet location where we can work together to help you understand your particular situation, looking perhaps at things that happened in your past that influence how you manage things in the present. Understanding these can help you manage your life more effectively now and in the future.
We can meet for either a set number of sessions (6 to 12) or for as long as required (open ended), each session lasting 50 minutes at the same time each week.

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).
