I offer a safe, confidential space for you to explore your difficulties. I use warm, non-judgemental responses to help you to talk about anything that troubles you now or things that have happened in the past. I have 20 years experience of working as a counsellor within GP practices and have gained a vast experience of working with people experiencing a broad range of issues. I gained an Advanced Diploma in Counselling at Durham University in 1999 became a BACP accredited counsellor in 2001.
I adhere to The Ethical Framework for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
