Is this you?
Is your mind clouded all the time, have you got 200 things running through your head, do you struggle to concentrate, find it hard to make decisions?
Do you doubt yourself lots, low-confidence, negative thoughts, think more of others than yourself?
Are you living in the past, grieving loved ones, not dealing with your problems, involved in toxic relationships?
Is it time to stop and think about your mental health and wellbeing?
People do lots of things to help themselves feel better, retail therapy (buying clothes etc). Beauty therapy (haircut, nails, lashes etc), physical health (go the gym, running, cycling, sports etc).
These are all great things to help us feel better
Here’s a question to ask yourself?
Are some of the above things just giving you a short-term fix and masking your problems. Would dealing with your issues and being able to move on from them and leave them behind, learn from them and grow as a person not be a better solution.
Here at Self-Actualise Talking Therapy Service I provide a warm and inviting safe space to allow us to work together to achieve your goals with regards to your mental health and wellbeing.
Counselling is more about what you put into it, the more you’ll get from it. Being honest with yourself and opening up to your counsellor takes courage, but the benefits are so worth it and rewarding.
You’ll notice the title states ‘about me’ at the start, and your probably thinking ‘I haven’t heard anything about you yet’. That’s because you’re counselling journey with me is all about you.
Some clients come looking for answers from the counsellor, ask for advise or what they should do. In my opinion counselling allows the client to work all these things out themselves with guidance from me.
You as the client have control of everything you do, what choices you make, what path you choose to take.
At the end of counselling clients sometimes thank me for what I’ve done to help them, I have to remind clients’ I was simply in the space with them, and that they did all the work.
However, little bit about me. I am an integrative counsellor which means I use different modalities of counselling to help clients reach their mental health goals. I specialise in person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic therapies. I offer an empathic, trusting, non-judgemental space for clients to work with me.
I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, bereavement, negative automatic thoughts, low self-esteem, low self-worth and confidence, trauma, self-harm as well as a range of other mental health issues. Please look further down on my profile for a full list of mental health issues I can help you with and have experience of dealing with.
Why did I choose to be a counsellor?
To help clients to realise their potential, their worth, their resilience, to help clients to reflect, and to help clients build their own mental toolkit for dealing with life. These are all things I’ve learnt and continue to learn on my own journey in life.
I offer face to face, online video call and telephone counselling, so whichever fits for you more and what your comfortable with.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile. If you think we can work together to help you reach your goals, then contact me with any further questions you might have and to book your first session. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
