Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with experience of working in GP surgeries, NHS and IAPT (Improving Access to psychological Therapies) services and private and voluntary sectors. I also work with couples. I offer supervision to other counsellors and counsellors in training.
I use an integrative approach in my practice and use different models and techniques to suit the individual. Seeking therapy is a brave step and it takes a lot of courage to begin the journey of self-awareness. I aim to provide a safe, warm, empathic and confidential service to all my clients to support you through the difficult times. I can also help you to learn effective techniques as recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) to manage stress, anxiety and depression.
I offer long term and short term therapy with a special interest in personal development work.
Alongside my private work, I offer stress management services and psychological well-being sessions for stress, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, bereavement and loss, confidence and self-esteem, anger and communication.
I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Clients I work with:
Adults, Couples, Young people, Older Adults, EAP, Groups, Organisation

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.
