About me

In these challenging times, I'm here to listen to you and help you find the best way forward.

Are you experiencing anxiety, relationship problems, a loss? I'm currently seeing clients on SKYPE and ZOOM, where I provide a space to reflect, talk, and feel supported. I'm an experienced counsellor and registered member of the BACP, the governing body that regulates counsellors and psychotherapists.

I’ll provide you with a safe welcoming space where you can freely express your thoughts and feelings. A place you can truly be heard. The way I work is by combine an empathetic Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approach. This helps clients explore past events and how they maybe impacting their life now. By untangle and exploring pasts, we can work together to identify a new way forward to enable positive change.

I understand the therapy process can be challenging, but with a relationship based on quality of presence, respect and a genuine interest, I’ll provide you with an engaging warmth that will allow you to feel comfortable in exploring your thoughts and feelings. Together we’ll find a new perspective that will brings self-awareness, self-belief and strength. I'll help you realise that you do have the tools to deal with the uncertainties in life and thrive.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia

I have personal experience with these issues.

Receiving a diagnose can be hard on all concerned, whether you are a parent with a child recently diagnosed. Are they exhibiting frustration and disruptive behaviours? Or are you an adult having difficulties with self-esteem and social anxiety? Need to talk it through?

I understand that it's a 'state of being' not just an educational problem. Together we can explore in a positive way how to deal with any issues that might arise.
