This Messy Human Life

About me

There is no guidebook to being human, it isn’t always easy, often it is messy and difficult to navigate.  Therapy can help you by looking at how you can manage your thoughts, feelings and physical reactions, where they came from and provide you with the tools to get you through the the difficult times and maintain your own well-being.

This Messy Human Life offers one to one counselling and psychotherapy online or by telephone with empathy, understanding and no judgement.  I place importance not only on the work you do in and out of the therapy space but also the healing power of the therapeutic relationship between us.

I work with clients from all backgrounds with a variety of issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, stress and bereavement (including pregnancy and infant loss). My specialism is working with clients who have experienced trauma either as children or adults, including growing up in toxic families and experiencing narcissistic relationships.

I can also offer support to those who feel grief and loss though other life changing experiences such as relationship breakdown, job loss, illness and disability.

My approach is integrative, which means I use different types of therapies and together we can work out what is the best for you. I also work with emotions felt within the body, teaching clients to notice their physical responses and encouraging them to connect their body and mind.

Online counselling is suitable for anyone who finds it difficult to travel to a counsellor, this can be for many reasons such as location, time, health issues, disability or just a busy life.

You have the choice of having sessions via telephone, video call or email.

For telephone counselling you just need a phone so I can call you, and for online sessions you will need a stable internet connection and a quiet, safe place where you won’t be disturbed.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Additional information

It isn’t always easy to take the first steps to contacting a therapist or to know if we are suited as client and counsellor. To help you with this decision I offer a free 15 minute consultation if you have any questions about the counselling process or if you are unsure that my practice is for you.

Each session costs £45 and is 50 minutes long. This price is the same for telephone, video, VoIP, email and messaging. 


Please book and pay for your first session via the online booking page on my website.

Regular sessions can be booked with me at the end of each session (payment by BACs transfer) or if you prefer you can continue to book online.
