About me

Life can present us with many challenges which may make us feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. These can interfere with our day to day living, create problems in our relationships and may lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, depression or other problems that can affect our well-being. I offer a warm, friendly and confidential space for you to talk through any problems you may be facing, helping you to make sense of things and gain a better understanding of yourself whilst supporting you in any changes you wish to make.

I am a qualified counsellor with experience of working with young people and adults including the elderly. My approach is integrative which means that I can draw on different theoretical approaches to suit your individual needs and best support you in achieving positive change.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I also receive regular clinical supervision to ensure that I am working in the best way that I can for you.

Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial meeting or if you have any questions or concerns you wish to talk through.

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.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
