I’m a fully qualified, MBACP Acc psychotherapeutic counsellor, running my private psychotherapy and counselling practice
I offer individual therapy to adults, I also offer couples/relationship therapy as well as group therapy. I work primarily using Transactional Analysis (TA), it is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach, which is widely used by psychotherapists and counsellors to resolve areas within your life where you may be experiencing difficulties.
It’s fair to say it’s not always possible to turn to family or friends for support, and sometimes our difficulties involve those very people. We all experience times in our life when we need help. Therapy can help to move us towards a life that does work and can free us from restrictions, providing more choices and freedom. It can help us find meaning and make sense of what is going on for us and move us towards a more contented way of being.
I believe what is important is whether we can work together in a way that is effective and helpful to you, therefore with individual counselling I offer an initial 30 minute free consultation. It might be that we decide to engage in short-time therapy with a very clear outcome, or we might decide to take more time and explore and work on a deeper level.
If you would like to talk to me about a problem you are experiencing then please make contact with me by text, phone or email.

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.
