About me and what I offer
Are you struggling with difficulties in your life and need some help? Would you like to improve your personal relationships? Do you want to talk to someone in a safe space without being judged?
If so, I offer professional counselling for children, teenagers, adults and couples. I know from my experience that the world can be a stressful place and our daily lives can challenge us emotionally and physically. It's this personal experience combined with my professional training that has shaped my therapy practice.
Counselling provides a confidential, non-judgemental environment where you can work through your problems. I offer professional counselling for children, adults and couples. My counselling experience is diverse and includes working with issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harm and emotional trauma caused by abuse or relationship issues.
I am a down to earth, genuine counsellor. As a counsellor, I will help you explore not only your present problems but also look back into where these problems may be rooted in your past. It is often helpful to consider how the past affects us now and with new awareness you are equipped to make any changes you wish to make.
Please feel free to call or email me to arrange an initial free of charge chat and we can then look to arrange sessions moving forward. I aim to respond to all new client enquiries within 48 hours.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
