I offer a safe space in which you can freely, fully and securely express and explore yourself. If you are feeling overwhelmed, chaotic or "all at sea" perhaps you could benefit from tools and techniques offered by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to build concrete strategies and find effective solutions. CBT for depression and anxiety is a solution focussed action plan to get you feeling better, fast. Some clients chose to stay for longer periods to do deeper, more sensitive work; such as healing low self-esteem or understanding recurring relationship patterns.
I passionately celebrate diversity and can quickly build nurturing, respectful and trusting relationships and I warmly invite you to join me to talk. I am always humbled and honoured to witness my clients becoming more self-aware, more self-accepting and truer to themselves.
My ground-floor therapy room is suitable for clients with impaired mobility.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

I believe that my success in helping people stems predominantly from my ability to feel (and convey) understanding and acceptance of the people who consult me. Because of my nature I am able to quickly build nurturing, respectful and trustful one to one relationships with people.
My counselling work is supported with a committed mindfulness practice, which in turn is supported with a comprehensive grounding in the Alexander Technique.
I passionately celebrate human diversity; diversity of personality, perspective, culture, gender, sexuality, spirituality. I have a deep and genuine liking for all people. Everyone is doing the very best with what they have and everyone wants to be liked, accepted, appreciated and understood. We are all a mixture of natural personality traits combined with learned habitual thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
