About me

There are times in life when we can feel lost or overwhelmed by our feelings. This can be due to problems or circumstances that feel out of our control. Having a person to talk to who won't judge or impose their opinions on us, can be very empowering.
Psychotherapy can help deal with issues that cause you distress or prevent you from living your life to its fullest. As a fully qualified MBACP Person-Centred psychotherapist, I can help you to explore your difficulties so that you can move forward in a more positive way. Together we can look at things from a fresh perspective and unpack the things that you are struggling with which will help you become more self-aware so that you can make informed choices and feel more in control. As a relational therapist I place much importance on the therapeutic relationship which can be immensely healing.

As you have chosen to read this page then I imagine you would like to change some aspects of your life or for them to be different. Therefore you are probably wondering if I - or therapy - can help you. Your concerns may be about difficult feelings that feel overwhelming. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression or anger, or you may be finding it a challenge to like yourself. Perhaps you're struggling with relationships and would like to work on ways to improve how you relate to people. Or you may be coming to terms with a trauma or a loss in your life and are looking to process your experience and see a way forward. Or perhaps you simply feel that something in your life is not quite right, even though that something isn't clear yet. People access therapy for many reasons.

  • Drug and Alcohol related problems
  • Sexual Health
  • Bereavement
  • Self-harm
  • Addictions
  • Eating Disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues

I realise it can be hard to make that first move towards seeing a Counsellor and of course you need the right one to suit your needs. If you are unsure and feel it would be useful to meet me first, give me a ring and we can arrange it, then you can decide if I am right for you. To get the most from the Counselling experience it is important to find the right person for your needs.
I offer both daytime and evening appointments.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

I have been a qualified Counsellor for 9 years and during this time I have trained as a Clinical Supervisor and taken an Advanced CBT course.. Before this, I was a Youth and Community worker for many years; working with children and young people up to the age of 25.

I love what I do and feel very privileged that people have trusted me with their inner most feelings and emotions. I have accessed Counselling myself over the years and believe that it has helped me to make sense of things and work through what has affected me. It is something that I believe in and feel passionate about and hope that this shows in the work that I do

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
