Welcome to my profile.
Starting counselling can feel like a daunting experience, but you've already made the first step by searching for a counsellor. To help to put you at ease, I offer a free initial conversation, where I will answer any questions you have and we can assess if I can help you.
I'm a fully qualified counsellor, and I use a person-centred approach, which means I provide a safe, confidential space, so you can explore your thoughts and feelings without judgement. I will work with you through whatever you bring to your sessions, with warmth, acceptance, so you feel listened to and are able to share the issues that are troubling you.
I have a deep interest in the mind / body relationship, particularly in areas of anxiety and trauma. I use mindfulness techniques, to connect clients with their bodies, and the sensations they may be experiencing. Where appropriate, I assist clients in understanding their bodies reaction and the physical processes that may be causing this, which can help clients regain control and reduce anxiety.

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.
