About me

Is it difficult right now for you to imagine a life that's free from the painful grip of fear & anxiety? Do you feel alone in a world full of people but no one notices your struggles? Have you become so good at painting on a smile, and maybe you are better at helping others along their journey, while underneath you feel bad about your own life. Who is there to catch you if you're the one that’s falling off the wagon? When was the last time someone was there for you, to listen to you and say, "I understand, I'm sorry you're having a rough time!"

Successful counselling is determined by successful outcomes and the achievement of your counselling goals. My aim is to enable you to move forward positively from trauma-related anxiety as soon as possible so that you can feel more fulfilled in your intimate relationships.

Are you worried about revealing feelings and bringing up traumatic experiences in counselling? Do you worry about what other people may think? You may want things to change quickly.

You are at the heart of my work.

Your recovery is dependent on your commitment. Long term trauma such as neglect or sexual abuse in childhood, domestic violence and abusive relationships may need longer-term counselling to address deeper rooted issues.

Working with me is different.
I understand it might be difficult for you to trust someone with your most intimate fears and anxieties, without fear of judgement. This step takes courage.
It takes a few sessions to build up the essential therapeutic rapport because feeling safe and respected is essential for therapy to be successful. You will feel welcomed with openness, honesty and authenticity.

Empathy is a core condition for healing emotional pain. You can feel very safe because you know that your deepest fears are held with confidentiality, safety and security.

You will benefit from
•   Moving gently through your difficulties while gaining helpful insights about your immediate issues.
•   You will experience more confidence and empowerment whether you are single or in a relationship.

Offload your worries now. Talk to a professional who has the capacity to hold your troubles safely and is committed to walking alongside you while you are processing distressing feelings and learning new ways to see things.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
