My name is Mandy and I am an integrative therapist. My aim is to guide you to recovery. You may be taking the first steps in exploring the challenges that you face and this can be a scary and difficult decision to make. I will be happy to support you and accompany you on your journey.
My training enables me to utilise different approaches and work at a pace tailored to the needs of each individual. I have a wealth of experience dealing with bereavement and loss and also work with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and other stress related issues.
I will offer an empathic, trusting, and non judgemental relationship with whatever you decide to bring to therapy within a supportive and confidential environment . I will walk alongside you whilst offering you the opportunity to explore and resolve any emotional difficulties.

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.
