If you are struggling with generalised anxiety, stress, family issues, or feeling sad and have experienced panic attacks and need someone to talk to then counselling could help.
I am now offering online sessions using Zoom or face time.
I am a 51 year old wife and mother, who has in the past sought counselling to help me through difficult times in my life. Through the training I have undertaken I am now in the privileged position to offer a professional counselling service for anyone looking at making the sometimes difficult decision to seek help.
I offer you a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment. The service I offer is professional and confidential based on a person centred approach.Whatever we do, we do together, we will go at your pace. It can take time to feel safe enough to let someone in.
Beginning therapy is a really positive step towards moving your life forward and making changes that will make a real difference.
I am a professionally qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), working with adults and young people.
I charge a discounted fee for the first session; this gives us a chance to meet and see if we both think I could be helpful to you. We can explore what you are hoping to gain from counselling and then discuss if you wish to take up future sessions.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
