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.
I have recently introduced group therapy for many of the subjects I have listed. If one to one therapy is not for you or you are concerned about cost? 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).

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.
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.

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.
