The first step to peace of mind, can be to talk to a qualified counsellor.
I'll work with you in a way that honours your uniqueness and value. We will move at a pace that is comfortable and supportive, and together we can explore ways of looking at your experience, finding the answers that are meaningful to you.
Often we are our own harshest critic.
I can help you build the self acceptance and compassion that you deserve, as I have learnt that the answers are often right in front of us, in the present moment. I work with the issues listed below, as well as others:
- Issues affecting young people (16-25)
- Relationship problems
- Family issues
- Questions around identity
- Physical and sexual abuse
Whatever is on your mind right now (perhaps made worse or caused by the exceptional circumstances of the pandemic) I can offer a caring and confidential space to help you. Speaking out and sharing what's going on for you can start to lighten the load, and enable you to breathe.
Therapy can be about learning to see yourself more clearly and accept who you are: body, mind and spirit. Therapy is also useful if you are looking for personal development and progressing in life, whether this means work or relationships.
I would appreciate the opportunity to work alongside you in a way that matches your current needs and experience in life, providing a unique space during your demanding week, where you'll be genuinely listened to without interruption or judgement. So please get in touch by email or phone and we can discuss an initial session, and what you are looking for from therapy. I am currently working online (Zoom) and face to face .

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
