I totally understand that looking for a counsellor is very daunting and appreciate the decision to trying therapy can evoke many feelings of anxiety. But sometimes just talking through your concerns and being truly listened to can help you see things from a unique perspective.
If you are struggling with your self-esteem, whether you feel worthless, have people pleasing behaviours, have suffered loss or want to value yourself more. Have or been going through redundancy or are feeling depressed. Then I will provide you with the space for you to tell your story at your own pace and in your own time in total confidence.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

My fees are £40 per session-there is flexibility on this especially for those on a reduced income, are unemployed or are currently a student.
The therapy I offer is non-judgemental and non-directive. You decide what to bring to our sessions to process and explore. My approach is to be open, honest, and supportive. The therapeutic relationship is caring and accepting which is fundamental to the counselling process. My aim is to help you develop clarity by listening providing insight and support and together we can explore new coping strategies and make choices about change. By working together with me in a confidential and safe space it will enable you an increased sense of understanding of your thoughts and feelings, especially when feeling disheartened, anxious, depressed confused and unable to cope.
