There comes a time when we all need the space to think in a quiet private place. A place to be free, to be heard and to share the deep routed feelings and concerns. Changes in our thoughts, feelings and behaviours do not occur overnight. It is normally something that has been building up over a significant period of time.
Whether you are finding it difficult to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. If you are finding life difficult right now. Having an accepting, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore all of this will allow for a positive mind set as well as an improvement in your overall wellbeing.
My primary focus is centred around your wellbeing, supporting you to understand and explore any area of your personal life you wish to make more sense of or change.
I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor. I am a registered with the BACP, working within their ethical guidelines and fully insured with Holistic Insurance.
I have worked in a variety of practice areas such as NHS mental health, bereavement support, EAP, culturally sensitive and wellbeing support settings.
I am a person centred counsellor working in an integrative way, as I appreciate not one style of working fits all. I offer open-ended counselling, supporting and guiding you along your personal journey.

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.
