How I work

Person Centred Therapy is built upon the relationship between counsellor and client, I will act as an empathetic facilitator listening without judgement, and acknowledging your experiences without input. I believe that you have the ability to thrive at life and I am passionate about supporting your self discovery.

Person Centred Therapy is a non directive approach, this means that I will not come to the sessions with an agenda. It's a fluid way of working ensuring all of your challenges are talked through, whether they are different from existing topics or not. It is also a way of working by encouraging and empowering you to become in control of your life. We will work in the here and now and will discuss ways of being present rather than consumed with the past or future.

I am a friendly, approachable, considerate person and offer confidential support without judgement.

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.

Further information

What clients have said

"You completely saved my life... I was stuck in the deepest darkest rut, that I've ever been stuck in and didnt think I'd ever get better."

" I thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel not even a flicker, yet you pulled me up and got me back on track again and now I'm doing things for me, I'm fitter than I've ever been  and soon I'll be more skilled than I've ever been."

"You never gave up on me, and every time I saw you it was like an immense weight had been lifted off of my chest for the first time in my life."
