About me

By working with me you will get someone who is empathic, understanding, confident, relaxed, and trustworthy. What you see is what you get, there is no façade, just me.

Sessions are pressure free, there are no expectations placed on you. We enter the sessions together as a team, working towards what you want to achieve, taking those baby steps to get to where you want to be.

There is no time frame for our sessions, we work at a pace that is comfortable for you. Sessions are usually once a week but can be more or less frequent depending on what you need.

I offer therapy for any and all issues, and am accepting of whatever it is that you would like to work through. My belief is that we all are capable of bettering ourselves, we can all do better and be better. Therapy is another step towards bettering yourself and allowing yourself to grow.

In my experience therapy allows us to see the potential in ourselves. It helps better our understanding of who we are, what we have gone through and how that has impacted us. Through this understanding we are capable of accepting ourselves and making any necessary changes to keep our development going.

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.
