About me

You are on the verge of making brave and positive steps in your life. You want to move forward but something is keeping you stuck or holding you back. I can help!

I am passionate about normalising seeking support when you need it. You do not need to have experienced something catastrophic to justify why you are finding things difficult. There is no criteria for needing professional support; it is an investment in yourself and your future.

It's important to know that we ALL experience times in our life that are overwhelming, challenging and sometimes paralysing. I'm here to navigate the journey with you, safely and confidentially as your personal and non-judgmental cheerleader.  You matter, your feelings matter and your happiness matters. If anything is impacting that, with my support you can work things through.

My insight and intervention will help you to identify how your feelings could be impacting your behaviour, your choices and the quality and depth of your relationships, particularly the relationship you have with yourself.

I will help you to discover a new way of moving forward which feels positive and is aligned with who you are and what you want for your life.

Today could be day #1 of a new outlook, new priorities, a new direction. What could the future hold? With warmth and compassion, I'm looking forward to finding out with you. If you would like to explore the possibilities, email me for a no commitment chat. I'm looking forward to talking to you!

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
