About me

I understand how daunting it can feel to reach out and you may be wondering if therapy is for you. Sharing your feelings with someone who will listen and not judge can bring longed-for relief. I offer a confidential, compassionate space for you to explore and understand any difficulties you may be experiencing. Through this increased awareness choices become available, opening up new possibilities and potential ways of being.

How I Work                                                                                                                   At its heart, therapy is about the relationship between us and it's important to find someone who feels like a good fit for you. I believe every person is unique and benefits from an individual approach to therapy. Working from an integrative perspective rather than a single theoretical model allows us to find what feels most helpful for you. Our work may be short-term, long-term or open-ended depending on your needs. Each session lasts 50 minutes and takes place at the same time and place each week.

Next Steps                                                                                                                      Get in touch by email or phone to arrange an initial 50 minute exploratory session. This gives us the chance to begin to get to know each other, discuss what brings you to therapy and get a sense of how we might work together before any commitment is made.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
