Please note that if you are seeking counselling, during these challenging times, I would be pleased to discuss the possibility of telephone, or video, counselling sessions (at a reduced cost) with you. Please do get in touch.
Taking the first steps to reach out for counselling, and the right counselling relationship, whatever the reason(s) for your current difficulty and struggle, can seem a daunting and rather scary prospect. I understand, through my own experience, how important it is to find the right 'fit' in terms of a counsellor and that this is an extremely personal, individual, matter. I will do my upmost to work in a way, and be in relationship with you, that offers you the experience of unconditional acceptance and positive regard, as well as the support of being alongside you so that, together, we can work through your experience.
Your current struggles might centre around anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, or perhaps it is something more difficult to define and pin down but you are left somehow with the experience of a general unease and disquiet in your life. Any one of these experiences might be nudging you to reach out for some professional support...when it feels like you can't do this on your own anymore.
I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor & psychotherapist working within an established approach which places you at the very heart of the therapeutic relationship. I am committed to really hearing and understanding your perspective and experience of yourself, your relationships and your world.
I will offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space, in which I hope that you will begin to feel able to work through whatever is troubling and of concern for you.
A relationship which is based on mutual and shared trust encourages the development of greater levels of self-awareness and the opportunity for you to explore new and different ways that feel more positive, growthful and satisfying.
If you feel that the experience of being heard and fully met in this way could be beneficial for you please do make contact with me for an initial discussion.

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.

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).
