About me

Mental health is spoken about now more than ever, however for some it is still difficult to talk about feelings. Often people are worried about being seen as weak, or they are ashamed of the way that they feel. Feeling unable to talk or to share feelings and experiences can have a huge impact on our mental health. I created Time2Talk Therapy to support those who are struggling with their mental health and don't know where to turn, to let people know that they are not alone, that there is someone here to listen.

There are many different types of counselling. I am trained in humanistic and existential therapy. I believe that being your true self and living authentically can lead to a fulfilling and complete life. I don't diagnose but work with each person as a unique individual and work with you to tailor sessions to suit your specific needs.

I work in many different areas but specialise in self-esteem, anxiety, depression and loss and change.

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.
