The decision to see a counsellor can feel like a big step. You may be nervous about talking to someone you don't know, or embarrassed about having to ask for help. Admitting that things aren't working for you however takes courage and is a sign of strength - and I am hear to listen.
Talking problems through can help to put things into perspective. But however well intended your friends and family, it can sometimes be difficult to talk about your deepest feelings with people that you know and love. I provide an opportunity for you to talk about what's troubling you knowing that you will be listened to honestly, without judgment and with empathy. Just saying out loud what's going on can be a relief. It can also help you to work out what's really bothering you and help you to explore ways to do something about it.
Please call, text or email me if you think that I can be of help.

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.
