About me

I am passionate about helping people living with loss move forward with their lives. Loss such as the loss of identity, youth, a relationship, a job, or indeed being bereaved by the death of someone can have a huge impact on your life. It can cause you to feel a range of emotions from shock, anger and disbelief to guilt, fear and profound sadness. Maybe the pain of your loss at times is overwhelming - so much so, that it's affecting your sleep, mood, concentration and energy levels? It doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to deal with this alone - this is where I can help. 

By listening intently to you without judgement and providing a confidential, safe space, let me help you uncover the tools that exist inside you to re-build your life around your loss so that you can not only begin to come to terms with it, but start living your life more fully and rediscovering moments of real joy again.

Taking the first step towards counselling can feel daunting but counselling can support you to work through your difficulties and to move on from feeling stuck. It can help you develop a more honest relationship with yourself. By gaining a deeper understanding of some of the things that are causing you distress, both in the world around you and within yourself, it can help you to see things more clearly. I offer a safe, warm, confidential space for you to explore the difficulties that you are currently facing.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
