About me

I understand that coming to talk to a professional can be really hard for some people and it may be a last resort.  But the evidence shows that talking therapy can be just as effective as medication in treating Anxiety and Depression.

You may come to therapy for a variety of reasons and with a range of problems.  My job is to unpick, with you, whatever is going on and help you to see a way forward or "out of it".  Clients present with symptoms, physical and emotional - Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Sadness, Loneliness, Grief, Anger, Family and Relationship Difficulties, Work Problems.  And I provide a safe and confidential space where clients can speak freely, without judgement.

I offer strategies that support my clients in making changes, regaining control and finding ways to make their situation more bearable.  I encourage my clients to be Curious about themselves and Compassionate towards themselves; to acknowledge their personal suffering.

Sometimes this is enough to improve things but sometimes it's helpful to look to the past to get a clearer understanding of how they arrived at this point and how they can avoid going back again. 

Increasingly I find that clients are reflecting on how they “fit” in the world. Parents are recognising the need for external support systems for themselves and their children.  I have a particular interest in ADHD and its impact on an individual’s sense of wellbeing.

Anxiety and Depression, Stress, Grief and unresolved problems all take their toll on us physically as well as emotionally. I work with my clients holistically, as whole beings.

The pressure of modern life and the times we've lived through, continue to have an effect on our sense of wellbeing.  If you think I can help with your stress or distress, please get in touch.

Best wishes

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
