About me

Are you ready to embrace change and regain your life?

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor/psychotherapist.

Therapy can be a scary prospect, working alongside each other WE can build a safe and trusting environment. Vulnerability can become your strength, TOGETHER WE can explore thoughts and feelings that might be stopping you move forward and by reframing them, allow you to take control in an environment with empathy, honesty and non-judgement.

I have a wide range of experience working with females, males and young people.

Many people are trapped by some kind of trauma that they might not even recognise they are suffering from, counselling can get to the root cause of blocked trauma in a sensitive and supportive environment.

During our sessions you will gain clarify and lift the heavy fog that can drag you down from time to time. Together we will walk through your journey, I offer interventions from a wide range of counselling models such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

You CAN change and live the life YOU want to, no matter how impossible that might seem right now. Together through the counselling process you will find solutions and gain a new depth of self-awareness. Taking elements of different concepts we can work together and explore the issues, thoughts, feelings and emotions that are stopping you move forward such as anxiety, depression, stress, panic, anger, addiction, relationship issues, abuse and many more. Through our therapeutic alliance we can also explore any self-esteem or body-confidence issues you may have without any fear of judgement.

Thank you for looking at my profile, please feel free to call me or email if you have any further questions.

If I am with a client I will reply as soon as I can so bare with me, I will always get back to you.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My counselling room is attached to my property and is on the ground floor, parking available. The main bus route is less than five minutes walk away.
