There are many reasons an individual seeks therapeutic support; maybe you are at a cross roads in your life or that you are looking for answers to the conversations that keep occurring in your mind.
I can support you in making sense of how you are feeling, and to explore how you can move forward from the place you are at now in your life. Our sessions would involve building a trusting relationship, and through this you would develop more of an understanding of yourself and what you hope to change going forward.

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.
