Hello - I appreciate taking that first step towards personal therapy can sometimes be a little scary and finding the right counsellor for you can, therefore, be a daunting task. I feel I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore whatever challenges or difficulties you may be facing.
Would you find it helpful to have the opportunity to talk to someone who will really listen to you? By working together, we can hopefully establish a therapeutic relationship where you will feel understood and empowered.
Clients I have worked with have reflected how they have felt heard, understood and accepted. Often they have been able to resolve painful and difficult issues from their past and make positive changes, enabling them to fulfil their potential as well as growing in self belief and confidence.
Depending on your needs, I am able to offer short or longer term therapy, ranging from six sessions to open-ended work. I have been in practise for over ten years as an integrative therapist and offer a variety of approaches including Psychotherapy, CBT and Person-centred Therapy.
Some of the areas I specialise in cover, bereavement, substance abuse, addictions, young people, relationship issues, sexuality, emotional, physical and sexual abuse and trauma.

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.
