Hello - I work with clients who are struggling with relationships. This may manifest itself as addictive behaviour, anxiety, depression or pure frustration. Due to extensive experience working with new parents, I specialise in attachment issues within relationships and coming to terms with major change or upheaval in your life. This may be through loss, a traumatic event and/or struggling with emotional family or personal relationships. Together we explore what is happening here and now and eventually create coping skills and a deeper understanding of the impact of emotions on your mental and physical health. My counselling approach is integrative which means we explore the triggers for your anxiety. When one person talks and another truly listens it creates a reflective process which shines a light on the reasons for lack of connection with others or feeling different to the 'crowd'. Together, we find patterns of behaviour that originated in the past. Behaviour learnt from our main care givers, friends or challenging work environments. This learnt behaviour may not necessarily be your natural way of being and gaining insight in to how behaviour gets embedded within, can enable you to make different choices and discover your natural self. Together we re position the pieces of the jigsaw and build new coping mechanisms to navigate everyday challenges. Rebuilding your life with a new prospective. This change can happen within six sessions, but sometimes it can be long term work,. However, the benefits to your wellbeing are deeply rewarding and life changing.
I work with an open approach with no judgement. I offer support to those within the LGBT community and having travelled extensively I embrace working with those from different countries and cultures. Outside of my counselling, I run a network of holistic practitioners such as acupuncture, hypnotherapists, osteopaths, reflexologists, and yoga. Combining physical support with talking treatment creates longer term sustainable recovery. This network is accessible via my website www.nurtureyourtime.com.

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.
