I am a fully qualified counsellor, Relate and Place2be trained, working with individuals, couples and teenagers.
I offer sessions either face to face, zoom , Skype or telephone, which ever way you feel would work best for you.
Along with being a counsellor I am also a Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Supervisor.
I offer Supervision to counsellors working with children, teenagers and adults.
I am aware of how daunting it may feel to embark on a journey of exploration and so I will ensure you have safe, confidential non judgement place from which to work on what ever you may be finding difficult with at this time.
We will all find ourselves, at some point in our lives, feeling overwhelmed, or unable to cope, whether that is due to something in the here and now or something from our past. I am very passionate about the work I do and feel it is of utmost importance to use the approaches I feel will suit each individual.
I work with individuals suffering depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, sexual abuse, rape, incest, domestic violence, suicidal thoughts and bereavement, along with many other issues that have impacted their lives.
I work with couples who may have communication breakdowns, affairs, attachments issues, addictions, bereavement, cultural difficulties, age, intimacy, jealousy, insecurities or challenges that have caused a breakdown in their relationship. Sometimes couples want to work through endings and this is also a journey that can be done with the help of a third person.
I work with teenagers who are self harming, suffer anxiety, depression, bullying, have difficulties in forming or maintaining relationships, low self esteem, low self work, eating disorders, family issues, domestic violence, addictions and many other issues from today's society.
Whatever it might be that is impacting on the here and now either from something from your past or something in the present I will walk with you on your journey as you explore different ways to untangle and make sense of your thoughts and feelings, gaining a greater understanding of you or as a couple, working towards acceptance and confidence to have a happier, healthier life.

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.
