About me

More so than ever, I am aware of the anxieties and uncertainties that we are all facing. Our world and the lives that we lead have changed dramatically, leaving many feeling overwhelmed, lost and fearful.

I understand people as a whole; working with your mind, your body and your experiences to facilitate a more holistic, present and fulfilling life.

Talking with an experienced professional, who is not a family member or friend, can help you to understand the causes of your unhappiness, distress, and pain.
Maybe you are struggling with relationships issues, anxiety is stopping you from living or you are stuck in depression. Maybe life feels confusing, you are unable to make sense of it and of yourself.   People come for many reasons. Being able to link feelings to patterns of behaviour which affect your relationships can enable you to make the changes you may need to lead a happier and fulfilling life.

I provide a safe and solid space for you to explore yourself and your difficulties in. I have a non-judgemental, accepting and empathic nature. I believe this assists others in feeling comfortable with me, enabling a trusting and congruent relationship to develop.

I am very aware how daunting and frightening it can be to make the decision to start therapy. I believe the key to successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I therefore consider that finding the right therapist for you is of upmost importance. 

Through our relationship you can gain a greater understanding of yourself, increasing self-esteem and confidence. This will give you the ability to have trust in you, make your own choices and find your own answers.

I am incredibly passionate about working with young people; working one to one at this complex time can prove invaluable and really go a long way in preventing problems compounding later on in life. I have a lot of experience working with young people, working as a School Counsellor and as a Family and Parent Practitioner within secondary schools.

Dependant on your needs and your financial opportunity, we can work together short or long term.

Email, text or call me if you want to discuss working with me, I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
