It is not uncommon to reach a point in life where you feel you need to reach out for help and talk about what is going on for you in a safe space without the fear of being judged, not being taken seriously and with someone who is trained to help you.
Talking to family and friends can be a helpful and supportive outlet. However, for many specialist areas they are often not the right people to talk to when reaching out for help and it can be counterproductive causing you to become even more entrenched in the problem that you were trying to deal with and left feeling helpless and in despair.
I offer a welcoming, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk and explore any areas of your life that may be causing you to experience psychological and emotional pain in a safe setting. It doesn't matter how problematic your life is or what form the problems or challenges in your life take, if they are causing you to be unhappy then therapy can help you.

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.
