Hello and a warm welcome,
You may be considering counselling because your struggling with a situation that seems overwhelming or out of control, For example, stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, anger or having difficulty with certain relationships.
Counselling can help you gain a new outlook on life and this can happen by us working together, which is the essential ingredient to receive positive outcomes. During sessions we will explore your thoughts feelings and behaviours in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way that will identify unhelpful patterns and help you look at problems with a different perspective.
I work with consideration and clarity to assist clients to achieve goals and live a happier life. Sessions last up to 60 minutes.
I am counsellor and psychotherapist and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), offering Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, however I may also include some use of other therapies where I feel necessary. Cognitive behavioural therapy is evidence based and sessions are quite structured so as to get maximum benefit.

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.
