People generally look for a counsellor because they feel stuck or unable to move forward from unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns. You could struggle to connect with others and maintain healthy relationships, feel like you can’t keep up with the people around you, as though everyone is doing better than you are. Anxiety and depression may be making life feel overwhelming or may just simply feel stuck. low self-esteem may be holding you backer you oddly even be suffering with complex trauma. I work with an array or emotional distress and keep up to date on training so I can provide you with the best support.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I draw on a range of theoretical concepts such as Person Centred, psychodynamic, relational and developmental theory. this means I can adapt the way I work to best suit your needs and therapeutic goals. Alongside my private practice I have worked with an agency that specialises in domestic and sexual abuse and trauma. I have worked with children with special needs and emotional difficulties and I regularly undertake extra training in order to continually improve my skills.
Please either call or email, if I am unavailable, usually because I am with other clients, leave a message or send a text and I will get back to you as soon as possible. We can then arrange to meet for a free of charge consultation so you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you. this will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about what to expect from our time together.

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.
