How you feel about yourself affects every aspect of your life.
Anxiety, Low Mood, and Self-Esteem issues can hold you back from fully being yourself, there might be times when you feel disconnected from life, yourself and those around you. Self-doubt, dread or negative thoughts about yourself and your abilities may prevent you from moving forward in your personal life or career.
Perhaps you are troubled by your past experiences or current situation, have a difficult relationship with yourself or others. You might feel quite alone, out of place or misunderstood, find yourself withdrawing, or putting on a brave face.
Personal counselling can help you to gain insight and understanding regarding your difficulties. Talking therapy enables you to gently unravel, process, and work-through complex emotions in order to resolve them. If you are open to understanding yourself better and want to experience life more fully, counselling is for you.
With the help of a professional counsellor, you will be given the support needed to overcome your difficulties. Counselling can empower you to be more at ease within yourself, take charge of your life and relationships. A more content way of being is possible and within your reach.
Due to the social distancing guidelines outlined by the UK government, all counselling sessions are offered exclusively online via Zoom; a free and confidential video-call platform.
Starting counselling in 3 steps:
1. Get in touch, and confirm your availability via email, phone or simply use the contact form. The more flexible your availability is, the higher our chances are of finding a suitable time.
Taking that first step can be difficult, reaching out can be anxiety-inducing; this is perfectly normal; after all, you are prioritising yourself, perhaps for the first time. There is a lot to be gained from investing in yourself, and yes, you really are worth it.
2. Your first session.
This initial session will give you a sense of whether counselling is right for you, it is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. It is a non-judgmental space where you can explore and make sense of personal experiences and difficulties in a safe and confidential environment. Your initial session carries no obligation for continued counselling.
Online video call sessions continue to be available via Zoom during the UK lockdown period.
3. You decide if ongoing counselling is right for you.
If you decide to engage with ongoing counselling, we will agree on a reoccurring weekly appointment, which will be yours for as long as you need it. You are of course free to end counselling at any point.

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.
