As unique individuals we experience different situations, events and upbringings which shape and influence how we think, feel and behave. Talking to a Counsellor can help facilitate exploration into present and past experiences or identify and overcome negative patterns. I offer a safe, confidential and empathic space where together we can gain awareness of unconscious behaviour, work to overcome issues and facilitate positive change. I can help you to explore your emotions, create new insights and break troubling thoughts or behaviour patterns.
I also work extensively with young people to reduce emotional barriers to learning and lots of other issues such as anxiety, identity, depression, self esteem and irrational fears that may be impacting on their development.

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.
