About me

Thank you for looking at my profile which will offer you some insight to how I work as a therapist. Sometimes, life throws us some challenges that we are able to take in our stride. However, sometimes life can throw us challenge after challenge and what we feel we would normally be able to cope with (if we took each individual challenge on their own) becomes overwhelming. Things like relationship difficulties, loss/bereavement, trauma and low mood can all take its toll.

I can help hold and facilitate change with an empathic, understanding and accepting approach at a pace that's right For you. I can help you to work through your difficulties in a non-judgemental way and offer you a space to be heard. Clients are the centre of all my work and I value each person as a unique individual. Therapy is tailored to the needs of each individual and is confidential.

Many individuals describe going away from their first session feeling a sense of immediate relief to have begun finding a way through what seemed difficult or impossible on their own. Our work together will be collaborative and there will be no pressure for you to disclose anything you don’t want to.

I am experienced with working with a range of issues including Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Abuse, Bereavement/Loss, Stress, Relationship Difficulties, and Life Adjustments.

if there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
