Coronavirus has bought many new challenges that may leave you feeling anxious and isolated. Simply having extra time alone may have heightened your awareness of things you would like to talk through.
I work in a relational way, which means I will listen carefully, not make judgements and seek to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings. Together we can explore the meanings you attach to your experiences and your relationships with others, helping you build your sense of self, your self esteem and ability to cope. Being truly heard, sometimes for the very first time, can be key in helping you feel better and enable you to find a new way forward.
I value the individuality of each client and will adapt my way of working to your needs. I hold firm the belief that every individual has potential to grow and change. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a supportive space to nurture such growth.
I have worked therapeutically with adults over a number of years and have experience in a variety of areas such as:
- Attachment difficulties
- Bereavement and loss
- Depression and anxiety
- Fertility Issues
- Low Self Esteem
- Low mood
- Relationship difficulties
- Impact of prescribed psychiatric drugs
I have completed specialist training in bereavement counselling and have worked with Cruse Bereavement counselling.
Please do contact me if you have a specific issue I have not mentioned.
I know it can be hard to work out who is the right counsellor for you, therefore I offer an introductory session at a reduced rate of £20, with no obligations to book again. Please email me to arrange this. We will talk about what you would like to get out of counselling, see if it feels like the right fit for you, and if you are happy to continue we'll set up future sessions.

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).
