Its okay to not be okay is something I strongly agree with! In todays society there is so much expectation from us all to be okay, to be perfect, to look, act and feel a certain way even through difficult times and this may lead to or put extra pressure on ourselves causing our mental health to suffer.
This is where I can help you and looking into counselling is the first step to understanding your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and finding alternative ways to deal and understand you or your child in a different way. Counselling is a safe space which allows you to have time to focus and explore yourself and I will be with you every step of the way within the sessions to explore this together.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (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.
