Life can sometimes be very challenging and navigating through significant life events can sometimes become increasingly difficult. Perhaps you are experiencing a general sense of discontentment and unease which is difficult to describe or you may be at a cross road in your life which has resulted in an experience of feeling stuck or lost. So often reaching out for support during these difficult times is often overlooked and can be a missed opportunity for moving forward.
Whatever brings you into counselling I aim to provide a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace. The cornerstone of my counselling practice is to co-create an empathic therapeutic relationship of authenticity and warmth. To respond to you in a non- judgemental way in order to enable you to recognise your own strengths, to help you to notice patterns of behaviour or thought patterns, to address negative aspects of your thoughts and feelings and to embrace growth opportunities in order to enable you to unlock your potential to find the answers for change which you hold within yourself.

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.
