I entered the world of psychotherapy so I could manage and eventually overcome the painful thoughts and emotions I had been experiencing.
If you are on a familiar journey, then psychotherapy can help you explore these uncomfortable feelings that have held you back from living life to the full.
Life quite often throws the unexpected at us, whether in the form of relationships, either personal or professionally. We sometimes find it difficult to cope alone and need the support of a counsellor to help us through these difficult times.
Together we can work through any difficulties you may be experiencing, in a safe and confidential environment where you will not be judged. Many of my client’s present difficulties with; relationships, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, work related stress, bereavement, trauma, eating disorders and problems with alcohol or drugs.
I work face-to-face, whilst offering online and phone session.
Feel free to contact me for further information.
Training, qualifications & experience
My experience has seen me work with clients on a one-to-one basis and in a therapeutic environment. My work has seen me focus on many areas and I consider this experience has enabled me to meet and work with a diverse group of people from differing ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations who face a wide variety of challenges, such as; anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, physical and emotional abuse, relationship difficulties, adjusting to life stage changes and bereavement, alcohol misuse and addictions (various kinds).
I am currently training on a Post Graduate Diploma Course in Clinical Supervision. I am able to offer reduced fees for supervision throughout the period I will be training. If this appeals to you please get intouch.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.

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).
