I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with a special interest in substance use and the complicated issues that can affect the drug user's life. As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I aim to help and support you through your addiction/recovery.
Apart from my work with addiction I also practice as a general counsellor & psychotherapist working with a range of issues with people from all backgrounds. Issues such as, low self-esteem, anxiety, work problems, family problems, loss and bereavement, depression, trauma and other psychological concerns that can arise in the course of life.
My work as a Person-Centred Therapist will involve building a compassionate, confidential and non-judgemental space where you will be invited to talk about your concerns and what is troubling you. I will be working alongside you, supporting you and providing an environment which will allow you to fully access your own powerful resources. I enter the relationship with no agenda, the sessions are led by the client who decides what it is they want to talk about, we can then explore issues and options together.
I work from my office at home with most of my experience being on a one-to-one basis, helping individuals and their relationships-dilemmas, anxieties and other worries which informs how I work in my practice as a psychotherapist.

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.
