I am a person centred counsellor with a diploma in existential counselling. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or general problems in living my aim is to help you to explore and bring about change in a new, interesting and life-enhancing way. Existential therapy may be helpful to people who lack direction or who have worked towards goals which they no longer find fulfilling. If you have been through a crisis, be it a bereavement, divorce or other unforeseen change in circumstances, so that you find life lacks meaning and direction, existential counselling may help to point the way forward.
Life is complex. How do I fulfil myself and negotiate relationships and satisfy my conscience? How can I find peace and come to terms with the cards life has dealt to me? I find life limiting but need to progress. I have reached a point in my life where everything looks bleak. These are the kinds of issues I feel I can help a person deal with and clarify.

I have years of experience working with Cruse (bereavement) and Mind (general mental health) and can provide an understanding and accepting environment to people who may feel lost and bewildered.
I am a Member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and have monthly supervision as required by this organisation.
I have a Level 4 Diploma in Person Centred Therapy and a Diploma in Existential Therapy.
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.

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).
