Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I know that it may not be easy to seek help and support in times of need.
Perhaps you have been affected by loss, traumatic events, anxiety, stress, anger, relationship issues, identity or would like to live a more satisfying and meaningful life. Perhaps you are curious as why you react a certain way to situations, or encounter certain relationships and want to explore why.
Whatever your reason for looking for support now, I would be honored to be part of your journey. A journey towards self-development, awareness and emotional healing. I am a Qualified Gestalt counsellor, with experience of working in the Charity and private sector, offering both long term and short term therapy to Adults, Adolescents and Couples. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental, respectful space for us to work together to explore the difficulties you face .
Having had experience working with a diverse range of clients, I understand that you and the issues that you face are unique. My approach is to consider your individual needs in our sessions together. I work with the many aspects in how your difficulties present. This means that I can also explore with you how you may experience bodily responses and Physical reactions to the emotional difficulty. Working with a here and now perspective we can explore how past events and future worries may be affecting your present experiences.
Our first session is seen as an assessment session. In this session you can ask any questions that you may not have yet asked regarding the process. We will also discuss what you would like to achieve with therapeutic support, and an opportunity for you to see if you feel that I would be an appropriate match for you, as the therapeutic relationship is a very integral part of therapy.

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.
