I offer a safe, sensitive, trustworthy, supportive, and collaborative space so that when we work together you might start to feel comfortable enough to talk about the things that are hindering you in life, which maybe about yourself or another that are causing you distress. Together we can find meaning and understanding to your thoughts, feelings and at times conflicting emotions. Moving closer to self compassion and contentment in life.
As children the world is a different place, we see the world in a different way and so we internalize things from a different level of consciousness. Sometimes, not always, this can influence us in adulthood. This would be working at a deeper level where I would support you to explore inner feelings. I work at your pace the one that feels comfortable for you.
I have been working therapeutically since 2008. Working with a diverse range of individuals of any sexuality and background. I have experience of working with a broad range of psychological, emotional and relational issues, such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem and relationship difficulties.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
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).

Please feel free to call, text or email me for a brief chat to find out a little more about how life is for you and maybe what you would like to gain from coming to therapy. If we are happy to begin working together, we can see each other once a week at a mutually convenient time over an agreed period of time.
If you are not sure about where to begin or what you want from therapy but know that things are not right that is also okay too.
In the first session we would discuss how life is for you at present and what you would like to get out of therapy. If we are happy to begin working together we will see eachother once a week at a mutually convenient time over an agreed period of time or open ended period.
