About me

How can I help you?

Sometimes life can throw unexpected challenges at us and we can find that things that wouldn't normally bother us do. You may find that you have become stuck and unable to move forward to make the change you so badly desire. Perhaps you have noticed your mood has dropped and you’re feeling depressed. It could be that you find yourself struggling with anxiety or are feeling overwhelmed or stressed leaving you constantly worrying and struggling to sleep. Perhaps you are having problems at work or in your relationships, or maybe you have suffered historically at the hands of others (either verbally or physically), which is impacting on your emotions and behaviours now.
It's at times like these when we need to remember that it is ok not to be ok and talking to somebody can help. Counselling can help you develop the self-awareness and give you the tools that you need in order to repair and move forward. As a client it is important that you know I won’t judge you and I will allow you the space to open up and talk freely in a way which might not be possible with friends or family. I will work with you to help you understand and make sense of your experiences which will enable you to create positive changes so that your life feels more manageable instead of overwhelming.

About Me

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I have studied a variety of different theories which I can draw upon and adapt to meet your individual need.  I have worked in Private Practice for several years as well as working within the education and not-for-profit sectors which has given me a broad client base and experience to draw upon. In addition to this, I have also worked with corporate clients in a counselling capacity to enable them to identify where they have become stuck and move forward.

If you are experiencing difficulties and feel ready to take that first step and talk to someone without fear of judgement, please get in touch and begin your journey to becoming a healthier, happier you.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
